FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT: EUROPEAN ACCESSIBILITY ACT
On 2 December 2015, the European Commission published a proposal for a European Accessibility Act. Once this proposal is adopted, it should lead to common accessibility requirements covering products and services
across the EU.
Currently, there is
no specific EU legislation on accessibility
for persons with disabilities and the proposed Accessibility Act has therefore a lot of potential.
