Background

The new requirements on accessibility in public procurement have been active for nearly two years. The Web Accessibility Directive entered into force on the 23rd of September 2018 and very soon we expect the European Accessibility Act to be published as well.

The Web Accessibility Directive covers all public sector websites, intranets, apps and documents. All ICT suppliers that would like to sell to the public sector need to understand how to offer compliant products and services. When the European Accessibility Act enters into force, the regulations may be broadened to cover parts of the commercial sector as well, such as banks, TV, self-service terminals, computers and many others.
