What is the EN 301 549
(European Accessibility Standard)?

The EN 301 549 is a European Standard

Applies to digital accessibility (which includes web accessibility). As such, the standard mandates that all pieces of Information and Communication Technology in the public arena are required to be fully accessible.

Irregardless of what disability a person might live with, they must be able to access the same information as those without living 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 regulations for solidifying that sites online are authored and structured in an accessible and inclusive way to work as easily as possible with those relying on assistive tech.
