Today, the Council of the EU adopted the final text of the European Accessibility Act, marking almost the last step along the way until the Act becomes reality. Now only the publication in the Official Journal of the EU is still missing to seal the legislative procedure and make the Accessibility Act officially public.

You can read more in the Council's official press release.

We will soon publish our detailed analysis of the content of the Act. But for now we would like to thank all members for participating in the strong campaign for the adoption of the Act over the last years. It was a tough fight but we can be proud of what we achieved! Even though it is not fulfilling all our demands we are now focusing on the next steps and the transposition of the Act into national law.
