The legislation

According to the Web Accessibility Directive all public sector sector bodies in the European Union need to make sure their websites, documents, apps and internal systems are accessible. More precisely, that they comply with the European Standard EN 301-549, which in turn points to WCAG 2.1 level AA. On top of this, there needs to be a feedback mechanism in place where users can flag inaccessible content and an accessibility statement has to be published where you – among other things – state your level of compliance.

This can feel difficult and overwhelming – especially to analyse your level of compliance. WCAG and EN 301-549 are long and complex standards.

Luckily, our IAAP certified accessibility experts know this like the back of their hands and can guide you through the process!

What we can help you with

We always start with a kick-off meeting where we listen to your wants and needs, and then tailor the way we work accordingly. But this are some common activities we usually carry out:

  • Audit of your site according to the requirements in the Web Accessibility Directive – namely WCAG 2.1 level AA and EN 301-549.
  • Create a prioritised list of accessibility issues and suggested improvements.
  • Help you create an accessibility statement, based on the accessibility review. Compliant and ready to publish on your site!
  • Lead you through a presentation of findings meeting where we answer any questions you may have.

Price

The size of the site and which parts you’d like help to audit decide the price. But for a typical public sector body website – excluding documents and applications – it usually lands around 7500 euros + VAT.
