The commitment to accessibility of Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat
The FGC website has been built with the aim of providing universal access to all users, regardless of their physical, sensory or intellectual abilities, and the technical context in which they use it (type of device, software, connection speed, environmental conditions, etc.).
Therefore, we work with the aim of adapting the entire web to the recommendations of the World Wide Web Consortium W3C so as to eliminate barriers that hinder access to information and communication. These recommendations are summed up in the WCAG 2.1 web accessibility guidelines.
The commitment of Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat is to achieve the “Triple-A” (AAA) level of conformity, as required of public administrations by European and state legislation.
Directive (HAT) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 October 2016 establishes the rules required for member states to ensure that all public sector websites and mobile applications, regardless of the device used to access them, meet the accessibility requirements set out in the EN standard 301 549 v2.1.2 (of August 2018), of adequate accessibility requirements for public procurement of ICT products and services in Europe.
Standard EN 301 549 v2.1.2 is based primarily on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, of August 2018. Specifically, you have to meet the AAA level. However, the standard also has additional, mandatory and conditional requirements.
The directive is mandatory but not directly applicable, so at the state level a royal decree has been developed which, at least,develops the scope and requirements. The state transposition is Royal Decree 1112/2018, of 7 September, on the accessibility of websites and applications for mobile devices in the public sector.
