Disability Discrimination Act: Guidance on Matters to be Taken Into Account in Determining Questions Relating to the Definition of Disability [large Print Version]
The Stationery Office, Apr 28, 2006 - Medical - 56 pages
This guidance is issued under section 3 of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (as amended). It concerns the definition of disability in the Act, and gives examples of matters to be taken into account in determining whether a person is a disabled person. The guidance does not impose any legal obligations in itself, but any adjudicating body which is determining whether a person is a disabled person, must take into account any aspect of this guidance which appears to it to be relevant. The guidance applies to England, Wales and Scotland. It supersedes the 1996 guidance (DfEE, ISBN 0112709559). Other formats to be available are: braille (ISBN 0117036870) and audio CD (ISBN 0117036889)
