This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the following non-compliances listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Where downloads (in PDF, and other file formats) do not meet accessibility standards we plan to fix or replace them, either when they are next reviewed, or as part of our ongoing programme of review work, whichever is sooner.
Parts of our online services are exempt from accessibility standard 'WCAG 2.1 AA'.
We’ve assessed accessibility issues within a number of our online systems and believe that fixing them now would be a disproportionate burden (within the meaning of the accessibility regulations). In some cases this is because a system will be retired or replaced soon. We'll retire or replace systems in a way that causes minimum disruption and also make further assessments when supplier contracts renewed or suppliers are changed. Any replacement systems will be as accessible as possible.
We’re committed to being a fair and inclusive website, and we're passionate about providing accessible services, ensuring they’re properly designed and coded, so more people can use them, more easily, regardless of their hardware, software, language, location, or ability.
Our online services are currently being (and will continue to be) reviewed for compliance with WCAG 2.1 AA This statement was prepared on October 24th 2023.
