The Public Administration must guarantee the right of all citizens to accessibility, both in the virtual world and the physical one, independently of whether they suffer from physical, sensorial or cognitive difficulties.
As regards the virtual world, it should also be remembered that disabled users are one the publics most interested in using online services, since they may have mobility problems that hinder them travelling to do paperwork in the administrative offices.
Eustat undertakes to make its website accessible in accordance with Royal Decree 1112/2018, of September 7, on accessibility of websites and applications for mobile devices in the public sector. To guarantee this universal access to information, the accessibility requirements of the UNE-EN 301549: 2019 standard are applied in the development and maintenance of this website.
In keeping with this objective, the Basque Government has established that all the web sites or portals dependent on “euskadi.eus”, must comply with at least the first priority level of the WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) guidelines of the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium).
