The delegated member of of the Equal Treatment Authority to Equinet Equality Law Working Group took part in a meeting in Brussels on 24 April 2019.

Following the introduction of the participants, the latest developments in the field of anti-discrimination legislation and law enforcement at the level of the European Union and in Equinet have been presented, of which the priority is the adoption by the Council of the EU of equal opportunities for persons with disabilities (European Accessibility Act). The legal document adopted by the Council on 9 April this year defines the requirements for equal access to digital goods and services (such as computers, smartphones, ATM terminals, e-books, websites, mobile applications, ticket machines).

The main topic of the discussion was the third-party intervention that Equinet was planning to implement this year before the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).
