Declaration on Accessibility
We endeavour to comply as far as possible with the guidelines of the Barrier-free Information Technology Regulation (Barrierefreie Informationstechnik-Verordnung – BITV). Our review of compliance with these guidelines is based on an independent BITV test conducted in May 2021. We are working to remove the barriers that are still in place.
State of compliance with requirements
Parts of this website do not meet the accessibility requirements set out in Section 3(1) to (3) and Section 4 of the Barrier-free Information Technology Regulation (BITV 2.0).
The following content on the website www.supervisory-disclosure.de is not fully accessible for the reasons outlined below:
- Information and relationships that are visually displayed are often not detectable by software, as texts and graphical control elements are either not conveyed or inadequately conveyed using corresponding structural elements (e.g. headings for texts or form groups, paragraphs).
- The contrast ratio of some texts, graphical control elements and graphics does not meet the required minimum. The same is true of focus highlight. These barriers are being removed as the website’s front end is updated.
- Adjusting text size and spacing causes text to overlap. Technical revisions are planned.
- (Some) foreign language words or passages in older documents are not tagged. This content is being edited over time. We endeavour to make newly posted content accessible.
- At present, numerous PDF files, some of which are older, are available for download, and not all of these are accessible. We endeavour to make newly posted PDF files accessible.
