Spain

Spanish law 34 of 2002, passed on July 11, 2002, related to “De servicios de la sociedad de la información y de comercio electrónico (LSSICE),” or “services of the information society and electronic commerce.” Section five of the “Dispoiciones Adicionales” relates to accessibility for people with disabilities and the elderly. This section directed that public sector websites be made accessible to individuals with disabilities by December 31, 2005 in line with the requirements of widely recognized accessibility standards.
The Spanish standards organization, AENOR, developed a Spanish web accessibility standard UNE 139803:2004. UNE 139803 is the official standard for web accessibility in Spain and defines the level of accessibility that public sector organizations must conform to based on Law 34 of 2002. UNE 139803 defines both the technical requirements for conformance and the method of certifying sites for accessibility. The requirements of UNE 139803 are broadly based on the requirements of WCAG 1.0 and divided into three priority levels.
