Other informations

This website is reviewed by the Observatory of Electronic Administration (OBSAE), the last review having been carried out in November 2019.

Auditing and consulting work is currently being carried out to accommodate possible non-conformities and achieve full accessibility to the website that allows its use by anyone, regardless of their abilities.

The HUB's commitment to accessibility

The web HUB has been built with the aim of facilitating universal access to all people who consult it regardless of their physical, sensory or intellectual capacities, and the technical context of use with which they do it (type of device, software, speed connection, environmental conditions, etc.).

For this reason, we are working with the objective of adapting the entire web to the recommendations of the World Wide Web W3C Consortium to eliminate the barriers that hinder access to information and communication. These recommendations are specified in the WCAG 2.1 web accessibility guidelines. The HUB's commitment is to achieve compliance with the ‘Double-A’ (AA) level of conformity, as required of public administrations by European and state legislation. Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council of October 26, 2016 establishes the rules that are required of member states so that all public sector websites and mobile applications, regardless of the device used to access, comply the accessibility requirements that are included in the EN 301 549 v2.1.2 standard (of August 2018), of adequate accessibility requirements for the public procurement of ICT products and services in Europe. The EN 301 549 v2.1.1.2 standard is mainly based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, of August 2018. Specifically, level AA must be met. However, the standard also has other additional requirements, mandatory and conditional. The directive is mandatory but is not directly applicable, that is why a royal decree has been developed at the state level that develops the scope and requirements, as a minimum. The state transposition is Royal Decree 1112/2018, of September 7, on accessibility of websites and applications for mobile devices in the public sector.
