Open Conference on the Results from Phase 1 of Standards Mandate 376: "Public Procurament of Accessible ICT in Europe"

  • Brussels, Belgium
  • June 3-4, 2008
  • Co-hosted by European Standards Organizations CEN, CENELEC, ETSI
European Commission standards mandate 376 (M/376) aims to harmonise and facilitate the public procurement of accessible ICT products and services by identifying a set of functional European accessibility requirements for public procurement of products and services in the ICT domain, and to provide a mechanism through which the public procurers have access to an electronic toolkit, enabling them to make use of these harmonised requirements in procurement processes. The work is in two phases.

The aims of the conference are:

  •  to present the draft reports produced during Phase 1, of Mandate M 376
  •  to discuss the content of the reports with the widest possible range of interested stakeholders,
  • to receive proposals for changes, and
  • to prepare for phase 2 of Mandate M 376.

In order to make the conference as successful as possible we are asking attendees to send advance questions to the panel chairmen through the Web site shown above.
