Compliance status

Based on a simplified audit, we can conclude that the website partially complies with the European standard EN 301 549 on accessibility of IT-applications. Please consult the PDF with the full text of EN 301 549 standard on the ETSI website.

Full compliance can only be guaranteed after performing an in-depth audit.

Non-accessible content

Some pages on the eHealth Platform Standards website contain non-accessible content:

  • Some pages contain images (“img” elements) without “alt” attributes, a textual-alternative for non-textual content.
  • Some pages contain emphasized or special text without semantic markup.
  • Some pages contain content that a user interface control doesn’t have a programmatically determined name.
  • Some pages contain elements with insufficient contrast, i.e. less than the contrast ratio of at least 4.5:1, between text (and images of text) and background behind the text.
  • Some pages have no link at the top of each page that goes directly to the main content area.
  • Some pages have no link at the beginning of a block of repeated content to go to the end of the block.
  • Some pages have no link at the top of the page to each area of the content.
  • Some pages contain forms without a “submit” button.
  • Some pages don’t use HTML form controls and links.

Proposed alternatives

At the moment there is no alternative for the non-accessible content described. Addressing these accessibility issues is our priority. We expect to solve them by December 2024.
