The new Texas Architectural Barriers online System ('TABS') was implemented by the State of Texas on December 3rd, 2018.

All commercial construction projects having a cost of $50,000.00 or more must be registered through the new TABS site.

For a plan review to occur all construction drawings and forms should be uploaded to TABS in PDF format. ONLY PDF format is accepted by the state. Note: FedEx Office (formerly Kinko's), and other businesses offer large format scanning services.

Note: Where there is not a design professional with overall responsibility for the design of the project, the Owner (holding title to the property) is required to register the project with TABS and submit the construction drawings.

Upload the following to TABS, or you may email us or send a direct download link to Submittals@TexasAccess.com:

(1)  One complete set of the construction drawings in PDF format, and

(2) A fully completed TDLR Proof of Submission Form in PDF format signed and date by the design professional having overall responsibility of the design of the project, and

Note: If there is no such design professional the TDLR Proof of Submission Form is not required.

(3)  Pay the plan review fee. Payment may be by check or money order payable to 'Texas Access' for the Total Review Fee in the Fee Schedule. See the Fee Schedule & Payment page if you wish to pay using any major credit card.

Use the total construction cost to determine the appropriate fees in the fee schedule. The final inspection fee may be included with the review fee at time of submittal. One check for all fees is acceptable. Temporary checks are not acceptable and will be returned to the person making the submittal, thus delaying the project.

Note: You must pay the plan review fee in a timely manner. The submittal is not considered complete until ALL of the above items have been processed or received. The Rules require payment prior to the performance of any service.

We highly recommend that you visit the TDLR's Subscriber Notification web site and sign up to receive special e-mail notifications of announcements issued by the Architectural Barriers Division. This will help you to stay informed of Department releases pertaining to rules and regulations governing accessibility.
