On 20 September the extension granted by Royal Decree 1112/2018 will end. That is why we are keeping a close watch to make sure that web accessibility standards and guidelines set forth in the regulations will be met. After this date, websites must be accessible.
Coming into force on 20 September 2018, Royal Decree 1112/2018 transposes European Directive 2016/2012, making it obligatory for all Public Sector websites and mobile applications, and any receiving public funding to be fully accessible. The team at inSuit wants to pass this news along, but also tell you that we offer a high-quality solution that is fast, secure, and simple.
Who needs to comply with Royal Decree 1112/2018 before 20 September?
Royal Decree 1112/2018 covers all Public Sector websites and mobile apps. This includes government bodies, courts, police services, hospitals, universities, and public libraries.
