The European Accessibility Act

The European Accessibility Act aims to improve the accessibility of specified products and services, particularly those online and relating to technology. While Member States were supposed to have adopted implementing legislation by 28 June 2022, many are lagging behind, putting the application date of 28 June 2025 in jeopardy. We take a look at the EAA and its impact on various sectors, including e-commerce and e-books, transposition in Germany, as well as at the UK framework for accessibility.
