Guide to the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR)
Many more have a temporary disability. Accessibility means more than putting things online. It means making your content and design clear and simple enough so that most people can use it without needing to adapt it, while supporting those who do need to adapt things. Or someone with motor difficulties might use a special mouse, speech recognition software or on-screen keyboard emulator. The people who need them the most are often the people who find them hardest to use.
Accessible websites usually work better for everyone. They are often faster, easier to use and appear higher in search engine rankings. Most public sector websites and mobile apps do not currently meet accessibility requirements.
For example, a recent study found that 4 in 10 local council homepages failed basic tests for accessibility. Common problems include websites that are not easy to use on a mobile or cannot be navigated using a keyboard, inaccessible PDF forms that cannot be read out on screen readers, and poor colour contrast that makes text difficult to read - especially for visually impaired people.
You may be breaking the law if your public sector website or mobile app does not meet accessibility requirements. The accessibility regulations came into force for public sector bodies on 23 September You need to include and update an accessibility statement on your website.
The accessibility regulations build on your existing obligations to people who have a disability under the Equality Act or the Disability Discrimination Act in Northern Ireland.
For example, somebody might ask for information in an alternative, accessible format , like large print or an audio recording. Intranet and extranet websites are covered by the accessibility regulations. These are internal websites which disabled employees working in or with the public sector may use. The best way of doing this is to ask your team to check how far your website or mobile app currently meets WCAG 2. Then, make a plan to fix the problems found. Your web team should use the guide to making your website accessible and publishing an accessibility statement.
New public sector intranets and extranets need to be accessible and publish an accessibility statement. Older intranets and extranets published before 23 September need to be made accessible when they are updated. All UK service providers have a legal obligation to make reasonable adjustments under the Equality Act or the Disability Discrimination Act in Northern Ireland. Partially exempt organisations would need to publish an accessibility statement on their website or mobile app.
Some organisations are not exempt but may not need to fully meet accessibility standards. This is the case if the impact of fully meeting the requirements is too much for an organisation to reasonably cope with. In your assessment you weigh up, roughly speaking:. You might judge that the benefits of making some things accessible would not justify the cost to your organisation.
You might not be able to argue that changing this is a disproportionate burden. If you created a new public sector website on or after 23 September , you need to meet accessibility standards and should have published an accessibility statement by 23 September You need to review and update your statement regularly.
As well as helping everyone to use your website, thinking about accessibility upfront saves you money and time. You need to meet accessibility standards and publish an accessibility statement. This is covered in our guidance on how to approach fixing problems. Start by asking how much it would cost to make the changes needed to make your website or app accessible.
You might find that fixing everything at once would put a disproportionate burden on your organisation. State what your plans are in your accessibility statement to make things as clear as possible for people using your website. The accessibility regulations apply in the same way as websites for new, existing or outsourced public sector mobile apps.
The deadline for meeting them is 23 June The apps must be accessible and publish an accessibility statement by this date. GDS do this by examining a sample of public sector websites and mobile apps every year. GDS can ask for information and request access to intranets, extranets, apps or any public sector website.
If GDS decides that a public sector body has failed to publish an accessibility statement or that the accessibility statement is incorrect, it will publish:. Organisations that do not meet the accessibility requirement or fail to provide a satisfactory response to a request to produce information in an accessible format, will be failing to make reasonable adjustments.
This means they will be in breach of the Equality Act and the Disability Discrimination Act The EHRC and ECNI can therefore use their legal powers against offending organisations, including investigations, unlawful act notices and court action.

The treatment technique for the rule requires systems to monitor drinking water at customer taps. If lead concentrations exceed an action level of 15 ppb. If the action level for lead is exceeded, the system must also inform the public about steps they should take to protect their health and may have to replace lead service lines under their control. In , EPA revised the Lead and Copper Rule to enhance implementation in the areas of monitoring, treatment, customer awareness, and lead service line replacement. In , EPA published minor corrections to the LCR to reinstate text that was inadvertently dropped from the rule during previous revisions.

Сразу же? - усомнилась Сьюзан. - Каким образом. Даже если Цифровая крепость станет общедоступной, большинство пользователей из соображений удобства будут продолжать пользоваться старыми программами. Зачем им переходить на Цифровую крепость. Стратмор улыбнулся: - Это. Мы организуем утечку секретной информации.
Но что. Дэвид на экране застыл в глубокой задумчивости. - Разница, - бормотал он себе под нос. - Разница между U235 и U238. Должно быть что-то самое простое. Техник в оперативном штабе начал отсчет: - Пять.
Однако он не смог удержаться от вопроса: - Сколько же вы хотите за оба экземпляра. - Двадцать миллионов американских долларов. Почти столько же поставил Нуматака. - Двадцать миллионов? - повторил он с притворным ужасом. - Это уму непостижимо. - Я видел алгоритм.
Затаив дыхание, Сьюзан дважды щелкнула по конверту. - Северная Дакота, - прошептала она еле слышно. - Посмотрим, кто ты. Сьюзан прочитала открывшееся сообщение, которое состояло из одной строчки, потом прочитала его еще .
И мы, те, кто близко к сердцу принимает интересы страны, оказались вынужденными бороться за наше право служить своей стране. Мы больше не миротворцы. Мы слухачи, стукачи, нарушители прав человека. - Стратмор шумно вздохнул. - Увы, в мире полно наивных людей, которые не могут представить себе ужасы, которые нас ждут, если мы будем сидеть сложа руки.
В куполе нет света. - У тебя галлюцинации. Тебе пора отправляться домой.
Почему? - рассердился Беккер. - У меня его уже нет, - сказала она виноватым тоном. - Я его продала. ГЛАВА 33 Токуген Нуматака смотрел в окно и ходил по кабинету взад-вперед как зверь в клетке.
Глядя на экран, Фонтейн увидел, как полностью исчезла первая из пяти защитных стен. - Бастион рухнул! - крикнул техник, сидевший в задней части комнаты. - Обнажился второй щит.
