Government accessibility standards
The Australian Government Information Management Office sets out minimum standards of website accessibility, and the ASC website seeks to comply with these standards in an effort to make our content easily available to all users, regardless of the hardware or software used to access our website, or the constraints under which the user may be operating. The ASC website is regularly tested to ensure ongoing conformance with these standards.
The website accessibility standards outline three levels of conformance that describe how well a website answers the requirements. The first level of compliancy assures that a website has fulfilled all checkpoints that are absolutely necessary to provide a minimum standard of accessibility. The second level of compliancy assures that a website has fulfilled all the checkpoints that should be followed to provide a good level of accessibility. The third level of compliancy assures that a website has fulfilled all checkpoints that may be followed to provide an optimal level of accessibility.
The ASC website strives to uphold the second level of compliance for all webpages.
