Accessibility Statement

Welcome, this is the accessibility statement of the Regional State Administrative Agency for Southern Finland’s Accessibility Monitoring Unit. The saavutettavuusvaatimukset.fi website is governed by the Act on the Provision of Digital Services, which requires that public online services must be accessible. This accessibility statement applies to the website www.webaccessibility.fi and was prepared on 3 June 2020 based on the Finnish version of the web site, saavutettavuusvaatimukset.fi, and its accessibility evaluation assessed by a third party.
