Subject: Incorporation of accessibility in EU policies
Despite commitments regarding accessibility, we still see that new EU policy proposals in priority areas for the EU and its citizens fall short when it comes to ensuring accessibility for persons with disabilities.
For example, the Commission’s proposals for the Digital Services Act and the Digital Markets Act completely disregard obligations as regards accessibility for persons with disabilities.
How does the Commission intend to ensure that disability inclusion and accessibility are mainstreamed in its different directorates-general to ensure that important EU policies are at the service of all EU citizens, including persons with disabilities?
