Accessibility Policy

Last updated: June 1, 2017

This website has been developed to ensure that the information provided is freely available to all interested parties.

Every attempt has been made to comply with US Government guidelines regarding website accessibility, as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act. We believe this website conforms to Level A of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.0, so all Priority 1 checkpoints as defined in the guidelines are met.

To Summarise:

Color

We have attempted to achieve good color contrast between copy and page backgrounds, and color is not relied on to convey information or navigational options (e.g. “click on red to”).

Layout and structure

We have used a clear layout and structural markup for elements including headings, paragraphs and lists. Our web pages can also be read when style sheets are turned off.

Images

We have included descriptive alternative text for instances of images.

Web Standards

This site is web standards compliant. We have used HyperText Markup Language (HTML) 5 and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Level 3 that conform to the specifications as laid out by the W3C.

We are committed to making this website as accessible as possible to all audiences. If you have any comments or suggestions, or need assistance accessing information please contact us.
