EN 301 549 is the European standard that pertains to digital accessibility. This standard mandates that all Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the public sector must be fully accessible. No matter what disability a person might have, they should be able to access the same information as those without disabilities.
The standard includes every type of digital technology, including software, mobile apps, websites, and more. Content owners, producers, and managers should make sure that ICT they own does not violate EN 301549.
EN 301549 has adopted the WCAG 2.1 AA as guidelines for ensuring that websites are authored and structured in an accessible and inclusive manner to work as seamlessly as possible with those relying on assistive technologies.
