Accessibility

The objective of the web portal of Benidorm City Council is to offer accessible portals for citizens, so that, regardless of whether or not they are disabled, of their age or if they access the Web from unconventional technologies, they can surf the pages without encountering access difficulties.


Standards and regulations

The accessibility policy applied by Benidorm City Council is in accordance with the requirements of Royal Decree 1.494 / 2007, of November 12, which approves the Regulation on the basic conditions for the access of people with disabilities to technologies, products and services related to the information society and social communication media. That is, the current requirements of priority 1 and 2 of the UNE 139803: 2012 standard (equivalent to level AA in WCAG 2.0) are incorporated.

Likewise, this website incorporates the requirements of the Regulation of December 2, 2016, published in the Official Bulletin of the European Union Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council, of October 26, 2016, on the accessibility of websites and applications for mobile devices of public sector bodies.
