This explanatory memorandum presents in further detail the proposal for a new Directive aiming at the approximation of the laws, regulations and administrative provisions of the Member States on the accessibility of websites from public sector bodies | Published by the European Commission on December 3, 2012

Web-accessibility refers to principles and techniques to be obeserved when constructing websites, in order to render the content of these websites accessible to all users, in particular those with disabilities. Web-accessibility is of great importance for public sector bodies, to extend their reach and to fulfil their public responsibilities. Harmonization will lead to better market conditions, more jobs, cheaper web-accessibility and more accessible websites: a triple win for governments, businesses, and citizens.
