European Accessibility Act

The European Accessibility Act has extended the framework for equal access for people with disabilities. The legal document adopted in April defines the requirements for equal access to digital goods and services (computers, smartphones, ATM terminals, e-books, websites, mobile applications, ticket machines).

The ETA staff member delegated at the Equality Law Working Group of the Equinet (European Network of Equality Bodies) briefed in Brussels on the new rules of the European Accessibility Act, as well as the developments in the field of anti-discrimination legislation and enforcement at EU level and within Equinet.
