The purpose of this Standard is to define accessibility requirements for automated banking machines (ABMs) and ABM sites.
Note: While the purpose of the Standard is to make the product or environment more usable, there may be some people with disabilities who have requirements beyond the level described in this Standard.
This Standard describes technical requirements that are applicable to the design and manufacture of wall-mounted and stand-alone ABMs and to ABM sites but excludes drive-through ABMs.
This Standard does not describe the application of technical requirements. The extent to which these requirements will be applied is the responsibility of others, such as authorities having jurisdiction.
This Standard is written in SI (metric) units, and where converted from imperial units, the units have been rounded off with respect to critical dimension.
In this Standard, shall indicates a mandatory requirement; should indicates a recommendation or that which is advised but not mandatory; and may indicates an advisory or optional statement. Notes accompanying clauses do not include mandatory or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material that is not properly a part of the Standard.
