What is the European Accessibility Act?

The EAA is designed to ensure equal access to digital products and services across Europe. It applies to all businesses that engage in trade within the EU, regardless of their location.

It covers a broad spectrum of goods and services. Starting from June 2025, it will be legally binding in all EU member states. Notably, it directly impacts UK businesses and also affects suppliers to both public and private sector organisations. 

The EAA’s primary goal is to enhance the lives of disabled and older individuals within the EU by establishing a common set of regulations that replace country-specific accessibility rules. 

The Act predominantly focuses on technology, covering essential products and services within computers, smartphones, TV equipment, transportation services, banking, e-books, e-commerce, ATMs, and ticketing machines. Each product or service must meet specific standards to be legally traded within the EU. 

Save your spot: register today – registrants will also have priority access to the free AbilityNet EAA guide which you will receive by email in June 2024.
