AccessiWeb adopted as the basis for the French national accessibility standard

On 29 April 2015, the French Government officially adopted the AccessiWeb standard as the basis of the revised national standard for digital accessibility in the public sector, the Référentiel Général d’Accessibilité pour les Administrations (RGAA).

This motion recognises the important work undertaken by BrailleNet and associated experts of the Groupe de Travail AccessiWeb (GTA) over the past 15 years to provide an operational framework for applying or checking against WCAG 2.0.

From 2015, all AccessiWeb training courses, consultancy and certification processes are based on the RGAA 3.0 standard.
