Guidelines for how information and services can be configured to make websites accessible have been developed by WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative, a working party within W3C, World Wide Web Consortium). The EU’s member countries have agreed that public websites must comply with the guidelines. The current guidelines from WAI are called WCAG 2.0 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0). The work of making the website as good as possible from an accessibility point of view is an ongoing process.
