1. Accessibility statement
The Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community strives to make this website accessible in accordance with national legislation, the German Equality for Persons with Disabilities Act (BGG) and the German Barrier-Free Information Technology Ordinance (BITV) 2.0 in order to implement Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council. The technical requirements for accessibility are set out in the BITV 2.0. This digital accessibility statement applies to the site https://e-rechnung-bund.de
1.1 When was this accessibility statement drafted?
This statement was drafted/revised on 28/07/2020. The accessibility is technically verified by means of a final BITV test (www.bitvtest.de), to be performed by an independent inspection body in August 2020.
1.2 How accessible is the site?
This website is partially accessible. The requirements of BITV 2.0 are only partially met.
1.3 Which sections are not accessible?
The requirements of BITV 2.0 were used as a basis when creating the website. The website is partially accessible. An accessibility test is to be performed in August 2020 in accordance with BITV 2.0. As soon as the test result is available, the level of accessibility achieved will be recorded and any non-accessible elements will be added to this section.
The Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community strives to make the website https://www.e-rechnung-bund.de accessible. The site is currently partially accessible. To achieve compliance with BITV 2.0, a final BITV test of the achieved accessibility level will be performed initially followed by the subsequent rectification of the discrepancies described in 1.3.
We will continue to work on implementing the specifications together with the scheduled website updates (at least twice a year).
The next website update in August 2020 will remedy many of the discrepancies specified in 1.3. By doing so, the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community ensures that any outstanding issues are being dealt with step by step and are made available to users.
