Information on the procedure

Anyone has the right to request accessibility to a website, mobile application or any element thereof. It is also possible to request that the information be made available through an alternative means of access, for example, by reading a digitally inaccessible document, describing the content of a movie without an audio description, etc. The request should include the details of the person making the request, an indication of which website or mobile application it is concerning, and a method of contact. If the person making the request indicates the need to receive information through an alternative means of access, they should also specify a convenient way to present the information. The public entity should implement the request immediately, no later than within 7 days from the date of the request. If it is not possible to meet this deadline, the public entity shall immediately inform the requester when it will be possible to fulfill the request, but the deadline shall not be longer than 2 months from the date of the request. If it is not possible to provide digital accessibility, the public entity may propose an alternative way to access the information. If a public entity refuses to comply with a request to provide accessibility or an alternative way of accessing information, the requester may file a complaint about the provision of digital accessibility of a website, mobile application or an element of a website or mobile application. After all the procedures indicated above have been exhausted, a request may also be submitted to the Commissioner for Human Rights.
