This website has been built with the aim of facilitating universal access to all people who consult it, regardless of their abilities, physical, sensory or intellectual, and the technical context of use with which they do so (type device, software, connection speed, environmental conditions, etc.).
Therefore, we work with the aim of adapting the entire website to the recommendations of the World Wide Web W3C Consortium in order to remove barriers that hinder access to information and communication. These recommendations are specified in the accessibility guidelines of the WCAG 2.1 website.
The commitment of the Generalitat de Catalunya is to reach the level of ‘Double-A’ (AA) compliance, as required by European and state legislation in public administrations.
Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 October 2016 lays down the rules required of Member States to ensure that all public sector websites and mobile applications, regardless of the device used to access them, - comply with the accessibility requirements set out in standard EN 301 549 v2.1.2 (August 2018), of appropriate accessibility requirements for the public procurement of ICT products and services in Europe.
The standard EN 301 549 v18.104.22.168 is mainly based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, of August 2018. Specifically, the AA level must be met. However, the standard also has other additional, mandatory, and conditional requirements.
The directive is mandatory but not directly applicable, so a real decree has been developed at the state level that develops the scope and requirements, at least. The state transposition is Royal Decree 1112/2018, of 7 September, on accessibility of websites and applications for public sector mobile devices.
