Introduction

The present document was prepared in response to Phase 2 of Mandate M 376 [i.9] from the European Commission to

CEN, CENELEC and ETSI.

The primary objective of Mandate M 376 was to produce a European Standard (EN 301 549 (V1.1.1) [i.3]), hereafter,

for the purpose of the present document, called "the EN", that sets out in a single source, detailed, practical and

quantifiable functional accessibility requirements which: take note of global initiatives in that field, are applicable to all

ICT products and services identified in Phase I, and are usable in public procurement.

The present document is one of two Technical Reports that support the EN. The present document lists the standards

and technical specifications used in the creation of the compliance requirements for accessibility set out in

EN 301 549 (V1.1.1) [i.3]. It also provides a source reference for other documents needed to implement the test

procedures required by the EN.

The present document also notes new test methods developed during the work on the EN and identifies exceptional

cases where further research was found to be necessary. It does not address additional sources or issues raised during

the creation of later versions of the EN.

A second Technical Report (TR 101 551 [i.7]) gives guidance to procurers on the award criteria relevant to each area of

user needs in the products and services under consideration.

1 Scope

The present document lists the documents used in the creation of EN 301 549 (V1.1.1) [i.3] on accessibility

requirements for public procurement of ICT products and services in Europe and provides a source reference for any

other documents needed to implement the test procedures specified in that document.

As well as identifying the sources for the EN content, the present document also provides additional explanation to

assist users of the EN with clarifications and supporting information about measurement methods, particularly where no

globally agreed test presently exists.

Where there are any test gaps, these are identified and test descriptions and evaluation methodologies are developed. In

those exceptional cases where it is not possible to do so, recommendations are given on how the gaps should be filled.

The present document does not address additional sources or issues raised during the creation of later versions of the

EN.

4 Overview

When writing EN 301 549 (V1.1.1) [i.3], hereafter, for the purpose of the present document, called "the EN", there were

a number of key requirements that had to be taken into account.

It was important to build on the significant work undertaken during Phase 1 of Mandate M 376 [i.9] which resulted in

ETSI TR 102 612 [i.8]. Phase 1 was the preparatory work that preceded the Phase 2 activity of preparing a European

Standard (Norm) (EN) containing in one volume all the necessary functional accessibility requirements for public

procurement of products and services in the ICT domain. This EN, EN 301 549 (V1.1.1) [i.3], was intended to contain

these requirements in a fully demonstrable and testable form, compliant with ISO/IEC 17007 [i.14], the standard which

gives guidance for drafting normative documents suitable for use in conformity assessment.

It was important that the document should achieve global acceptability, originally by taking into account the

requirements of the US Telecommunications and Electronic and Information Technology Advisory Committee

(TEITAC) Report published in April 2008 [i.19] on which the Phase 1 work was based. Unfortunately, before work

started on Phase 2 of the Mandate [i.9], the US Access Board set out in an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

(ANPRM) of their "Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Standards and Guidelines" [i.23].

In order to maintain the aim to reduce the burden on manufacturers by providing a common set of public procurement

requirements for accessibility which as far as possible could apply to markets both in Europe and in the rest of the world

it was necessary to change the work to meet the new US ANPRM [i.23]. This has been achieved whilst meeting the

requirements mandated by the European Commission.

Whilst trying to achieve a globally acceptable standard it was important to ensure that the requirements of the EN took

account of the European public procurement needs, particularly in those areas affected by European legislation. It was

also necessary to take note of some areas where aspects of performance are controlled by different legislative

requirements, such as telephone transmission.

Where websites are concerned, it was important to achieve global status for the accessibility requirements by referring

to the well-established process of conformance to the internationally accepted web content accessibility guidelines

(WCAG) produced by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), an international community that develops

recommendations. These recommendations are currently at version WCAG 2.0 [i.25], which was adopted in December

2008.
5 Preparation of the EN requirements
5.1 General

For each potential requirement identified in Phase 1 of the work on Mandate M 376 [i.9], the sources identified in the

report were checked to see if they were appropriate to be a potential source of wording for the requirement (i.e. whether

it was a widely accepted global standard) and, where appropriate, to identify whether the specific text in the standard

could be taken into account when wording the requirement. A full listing of the sources that relate to each requirement

can be found in ETSI TR 102 612 [i.8] produced at the end of Phase 1.

The original Terms of Reference for the work on the EN were based on the output of Phase 1 of the mandate.

Subsequent to the publication of the Phase 1 reports there were considerable developments in relevant international

regulations and standards. The publication by the US Access Board of an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

(ANPRM) [i.22] in March 2010 was particularly significant.

When writing the EN an attempt was made to maximize alignment with the updating of the American accessibility

requirements that are foreseen by the American Architectural and Transportation Barriers compliance board's (Access

Board) document entitled "Telecommunications Act Accessibility Guidelines: Electronic and Information Technology

Accessibility Standards". This was published as an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) on the 22
