Once completed we will issue a VPAT document based on the results.
The Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) is a document which evaluates how accessible a particular product is according to the WCAG & Section 508 Standards. It is a self-disclosing document produced by the vendor which details each aspect of the WCAG & Section 508 requirements and how the product supports each criteria.
VPATs are used by buyers to determine how accessible a product is and where any potential deficiencies are. They are required by some buyers before a purchase is made.
The official VPAT forms are hosted by the Information Technology Industrial Council and are available in the Microsoft Word format.
The VPAT contains documentation on WCAG & Section 508 (2017 Refresh), Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.x Success Criteria & Conformance Requirements (Levels A, AA, AAA) as well as the European Accessibility standards EN 301.
