Induction Loop - legislation
 

 

J and J Electrical Services install induction loop systems.

Induction loop legislation

Induction loop legislation is set out to prevent discrimination against disabled people. Induction loop systems help the hearing impaired by transmitting amplified sound (for example speech) to hearing aids. Such systems are enforced by the following:

  • Building Regulations (1992)
  • The Disability Discrimination Act (1995)
  • The Care Standards Act (2002)

Building Regulations (1992)

This states that newly built and substantially reconstructed non-domestic buildings must have aids for the hearing impaired. Areas in excess of 100m², where a glazed screen separates the customers, require such aids.


The Disability Discrimination Act (1995)

The Disability Discrimination Act is aimed at stopping discrimination against disabled people.

 

From October 2004 the Disabled Rights Commission’s new Code of Practice comes into effect. This means that service providers have to install permanent induction loop systems where it is impossible or unreasonably difficult for a deaf or hard of hearing person to make use of a service. Failure to provide such systems can result in prosecution.

 

Service providers include: Telecommunications and broadcasting organisations, public utility companies, leisure centres, bus and railways stations, shops, hotels, hospitals, solicitors etc.

 

The Care Standards Act (2002)

 

From the 1st of April 2002, The Care of Standards Act (2002) took effect. This Act focuses specifically on care homes providing accommodation and nursing or personal care for elderly people in England. This regulation requires that communication facilities are provided for the residents. The provision and maintenance of these will be inspected by the National Care Standards Commission.
