Law 13/2014, of October 30, on accessibility

The importance of promoting accessibility as an instrument to give effect to the principle of equality of citizens had its first translation in Catalonia in Decree 100/1984, of April 10, on the removal of architectural barriers.

Seven years later, Parliament approved Law 20/1991, of November 25, promoting accessibility and removing architectural barriers, and subsequently the Government approved Decree 135/1995, of March 24, for which the aforementioned Law was deployed and the Accessibility Code was approved.

These rules established the basis for the removal of architectural and communication barriers and for the promotion of technical aids to improve the quality of life and autonomy of people with disabilities or reduced mobility.
