7. Development of digital products, services, and platforms policy 

UCL developers of digital products and services must:  

  1. Seek to ensure the product or service complies with the accessibility criteria specified in WCAG 2.2 AA

  1. Test the product for compliance with the WCAG criteria.  

  1. Publish a UCL Accessibility Statement for the product or service where it can be found easily by users. The Statement should provide information helpful to users with accessibility needs – including accessibility features, known issues/non-compliances, improvement plans and a support contact. The Statement must be reviewed when there is a substantial change to the product or service. 

Advice and support for testing and writing accessibility statements is available from the Digital Accessibility team: digitalaccessibility@ucl.ac.uk
