1. declaration on accessibility
The University of Graz is constantly striving to make its website accessible in accordance with the Web Accessibility Act (WZG) as amended to implement Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 October 2016 on barrier-free access to the websites and mobile applications of public sector bodies (Official Journal L 327, 2.12.2016, p. 1).
This accessibility statement applies to the website www.uni-graz.at.
2. status of compatibility with the requirements.
The University of Graz is currently in the process of completely renewing its website - accessibility is already an accompanying topic during development. Therefore, the content regarding the assessment of (non) accessible content will change constantly in the near future.
3. creation of this accessibility statement
This statement was created on 10.5.2023 and is constantly updated.
The assessment of the website's compliance with the WZG for the implementation of the requirements of Directive (EU) 2016/2102 according to WCAG 2.0 in compliance level AA will take place by the beginning of March 2024 in the form of a self-test using the method of thinking aloud with a large number of university employees.

5. enforcement procedure
In case of unsatisfactory responses from the above contact option, you may contact the Austrian Research Promotion Agency with limited liability (FFG) by means of a complaint. The FFG accepts complaints electronically via the contact form.
The complaints are examined by the FFG to determine whether they relate to violations of the requirements of the Web Accessibility Act, in particular deficiencies in compliance with accessibility requirements, by the federal government or an institution attributable to it.
If the complaint is justified, the FFG must issue recommendations for action to the federal government or the legal entities concerned and propose measures to remedy the deficiencies at hand.
