In 2006, the Board organized the Telecommunications and Electronic and Information Technology Advisory Committee (TEITAC) to review its standards and guidelines and to recommend changes.  The TEITAC issued its report to the Board in April 2008.  The Board is preparing a rule to update the Section 508 standards and Telecommunications Act guidelines based on the TEITAC report.
