"Disability Discrimination Act: Guidance on Matters to be Taken into Account in Determining Questions Related to the Definition of Disability - 2006 Revised Edition", 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 replaces the Guidance issued in 1996 (DfEE, ISBN 0112709559), though the 1996 Guidance will continue to apply for some cases of discrimination occurring before 1 May 2006. Other formats available are braille (ISBN 0117036870) and Audio CD (ISBN 0117036889), both of which are available below.
