EN 301 549 Accessibility requirements for ICT products and services – CEN/CENELEC/ETSI

(Resource URL) off-site link| Subtype: websiteDate: 6/1/2019| Audience: Anyone interested in more accessible products


Resource Description

This is the European equivalent of US Section 508, except that it is a standard that can be applied more broadly than just a procurement, and it does not contain the scoping and enabling language that is found in Section 508 frontmatter. Rather, its scope and application are defined by other laws. EN 301 549 is currently in revision. The link above is to the last released version for comment. It is highly harmonized with Section 508 but there are some differences that it is expected will be cleared up when Section 508 becomes unfrozen in future years.
