Abstract To improve accessibility, the government enacted barrier-free building regulations. Unless building regulations have been well-enacted and revised, there will be arbitrary interpretation. Misinterpretation can lead to unreasonable application. This study aims to derive characteristics by comparing and analyzing domestic and foreign barrier-free building regulations and guidelines from the perspective of applicability. A comparative analysis of American (ADA-ABA Accessibility Guideline), German (DIN 18040), British (Building Regulations Part M), and Korean (Act on the Guarantee of Convenient Promotions for the Disabled, the Elderly, Pregnant Women and detailed standards for structure, materials of convenience facilities) building regulations and codes were focused on. This comparison was classified into three parts: the background of establishing guidelines and generating legal force, the composition of the law, codes or guidelines and the method and contents of the description focused on architectural elements connecting spaces in buildings. Finally, based on these derived characteristics, a supplementary plan to increase the applicability of the domestic barrier-free building code was proposed.
