Accessibility law

Accessibility is a part of several laws and standards we must follow. Each of the standards feed into the Equality Act 2010 and the Public Sector Equality Duty.

If you are building anything which runs in a browser, you will need to meet the Public Sector Bodies Accessibility Regulations 2018.

If you are procuring hardware or software you will need to meet the EN 301 549 Accessibility Requirements for ICT products and services.

If you are working to the GOV.UK Service Standard you will also need to meet the Government Accessibility Requirements.
