TAS Review and TDLR Number


Projects with a TDLR number are required to be reviewed by a RAS and Inspected for compliance after construction is completed.  The Architectural Barriers (AB) program is a division of TDLR (Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation).  The AB program ensures that newly constructed or altered buildings and facilities are accessible to people with mobility, vision, or hearing disabilities. The program provides administrative oversight for plan reviews and inspections, and offers education and training opportunities.  

A TDLR number is assigned thru the required online project registration for construction projects in TX that are above $50,000.
