What could "simplified monitoring" of the implementation of the Web Accessibility Directive mean?

The Web Directive 2016/2102 mandating the accessibilty of public web sites and apps in Europe has been around since December 2016. The monitoring methodology that describes how the implementation of the Directive should be checked was published in October 2018 as Implementing Decision (EU) 2018/1524.

New WCAG-Test supports the accessibility of websites

The current BIK project ‘BIK für Alle’ (BIK for all) launched a new WCAG-based test procedure. This addition to the established BITV-Test procedure brings the test in line with the international standard for web accessibility, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). The existing BITV-Test checkpoints have also been further developed to cover recent developments in web technologies. After an evaluation phase, the new test procedure is now available, both as a free self-assessment tool and as an expert test procedure.   [mehr] zu: News from BIK - New WCAG-Test supports the accessibility of websites

About the English version of the BITV-Test web site

The domain bitvtest.eu provides an overview of the BIK projects and the BITV-Test, as well as selected English articles.

The BIK series of project was funded by the German Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, BMAS. The last BIK project was BIK für Alle (BIK for all). The BITV-Test as well as our articles and tests have all been written in German.

The English site bitvtest.eu does not provide a full translation of all this content. Instead, it offers a general overview of the BITV-Test as a tool for evaluating the accessibility of web sites.

In December 2017, a version of the BITV-Test has been released as WCAG-Test. Now, both BITV-Test and WCAG-Test are essentially following the same test procedure: BITV no longer uses its own annex of requirements, but points directly to the latest EU regulation, which is EN 301 549—and this in turn references WCAG 2.1 in chapter 9, Web.

This site also hosts occasional English articles and publications, and tracks BIK's involvement with other initiatives in the European context.
