Abstract

Public procurement is an important instrument for improving the accessibility of the information society. In Europe, in December 2005, the European Commission issued mandate M/376 to CEN, CENELEC and ETSI, to harmonize 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. The mandate is to be carried out in two phases: Phase I – inventory of accessibility requirements and assessment of suitable testing and conformity schemes, and Phase II – standardization activities. This paper presents an overview of the technical report produced by the authors as members of a CEN and CENELEC project team assigned to carry out “an analysis of testing and conformity schemes of products and services meeting accessibility requirements”. The work was developed from October 2007 until October 2008.
