The last accessibility review was conducted in September 2020.
Currently, audits are being conducted to adapt potential nonconformities and achieve full access to the website to allow its use to anyone, regardless of their abilities.
The Guies BibTIC website been designed with the aim of providing universal access to all people who visit it, regardless of their physical, sensorial or cognitive capacities and the technical context in which they are using it (type of device, software, connection speed, environmental conditions, etc.).
We are therefore working to adapt the entire website to follow the recommendations of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to remove barriers that hinder access to information and communication. These recommendations are set out in the WCAG 2.1 web content accessibility guidelines.
Pompeu Fabra University is committed to meeting the 'Double-A' (AA) conformity level, as required in public administration pursuant to European and Spanish legislation.
Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 October 2016 establishes the rules required for member states to ensure that all websites and mobile applications in the public sector, regardless of the device used for access thereto, meet the accessibility requirements under standard EN 301 549 v2.1.2 (August 2018) on adequate accessibility requirements for the public contracting of ICT goods and services in Europe.
EN 301 549 v2.1.2 is based principally on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, of August 2018. Specifically, level AA must be met. However, the standard also has other additional, compulsory and conditional requirements.
The directive is binding but it is not directly applicable, hence in Spain, a royal decree has been drawn up, implementing the scope and the requirements at least. The state implementation is Royal Decree 1112/2018, of 7 September, on the accessibility of websites and applications for mobile devices in the public sector.
