The EU Accessibility Directive

The European Union (EU) Directive 2016/2102 "on the accessibility of the websites and mobile applications of public sector bodies" came into effect in December 2016 and requires that all public sector bodies comply with certain minimum accessibility standards by the end of December 2018. The directive also contains guidelines for national monitoring of compliance and the possibility of imposition of penalties for non-compliance.

While the specific implementation acts are yet to be written and there is still only sparse agreement over the actual technical standards to be adopted (the Web Accessibility page of the European Commission reflects the current understanding well), Empery IT and Management consulting has been in privileged contact with the Learning, Multilingualism and Accessibility (G3) Unit of the European Commission and is uniquely positioned to prepare your organization for full and immediate potential compliance well before the dealine.

Empery Management and Accessibility consulting will help you prepare your organization for full compliance with the directive via our Web and Mobile Accessibility consulting services.
