Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Some PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).

We aim to provide alternatives by 23 September 2020. We’ll make sure that any new PDF documents meet accessibility standards before they are published.

The ‘bold’ tag is used to format text in the comments box. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 Info and relationships. 

We aim to remove this syntax by 23 September 2020.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

Embedded YouTube video content does not have audio description or subtitles/text captions. This content was recorded before 23 September 2020  and is therefore exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
