An important legal waiver recently expired and as a result, video game developers and publishers must now ensure that new and substantially upgraded games comply with the accessibility requirements of the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (“CVAA”).

While the CVAA was signed into law in 2010, video game developers and publishers were granted a waiver exempting them from compliance. However, the final waiver for video games expired on December 31, 2018, and the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) has stated that no additional waivers will be granted. Therefore, as of January 1, 2019, video games must comply with the law.

What does compliance look like?
