New international accessibility standard ISO 30071-1 digital accessibility standard – all you need to know (supersedes BS 8878)
What is it?
ISO 30071-1 Code of practice for creating accessible ICT products and services, released on 28th May 2019, is an international process-oriented Standard enabling organisations to embed accessibility considerations into their “business as usual” processes. The new Standard adapts and extends its predecessor, British Standard BS 8878, which it supersedes.
Our Chief Exec, Jonathan Hassell, led the creation of ISO 30071-1 as part of Hassell Inclusion’s commitment to share our years of accessibility experience with the widest audience we can reach, to have the greatest impact on accessibility internationally.
