The Interpraevent Symposium makes every effort to update its websites in accordance with the Web Accessibility Act (WZG) as amended to implement Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and Council of October 26, 2016 on barrier-free access to websites and mobile public bodies (Official Gazette L 327 of December 2nd, 2016, p. 1) to make it barrier-free.

This declaration of accessibility applies to the website

State of compliance with the requirements

Due to the following incompatibilities and exceptions, this website is partially compliant with conformity level AA of the "Web Content Accessibility Guidelines - WCAG 2.1" or with the applicable European Standard EN 301 549 V2.1.2 (2018-08).

We plan to successively correct those deficiencies that have been editorially corrected by the end of the year. We intend to fix programming defects as part of a version upgrade planned for this year.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is not accessible for the following reasons:

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

  • Success Criterion 4.1.2 (Name, Role, Value):
    Some fields are incorrectly labelled. Some fields are without label in the contact form. This is because of spam protection. However, the contact form is still accessible with the keyboard.

The contents do not fall within the scope of the applicable legislation:

  • Third-party content that is not within the sphere of influence of INTERPRAEVEENT is also exempt from the Web Accessibility Act. These are, for example, presentation documents from external speakers. On the one hand, this can be non-accessible content or, on the other hand, non-accessible formats.

Creation of this accessibility statement

This statement was created on December 04, 2023.

The evaluation of the compatibility of the website with the WZG to implement the requirements of Directive (EU) 2016/2102 was carried out in the form of a self-test in the same CMS and with the same template set of websites from other ministries, which therefore have analogous barriers. Individual page contents are regularly checked by the web editors when new content is published.

Enforcement Procedures

If you do not get satisfactory answers from the above contact option, you can lodge a complaint with the Austrian Research Promotion Agency with Limited Liability (FFG). The FFG accepts complaints electronically via the contact form.

Complaints contact form

The complaints are examined by the FFG to determine whether they relate to violations of the requirements of the Web Accessibility Act, in particular deficiencies in compliance with accessibility requirements, by the federal government or an institution that can be assigned to it.

If the complaint is justified, the FFG must make recommendations for action to the federal government or the legal entities concerned and propose measures to remedy the deficiencies at hand.
