Autism-Europe’s response to the proposal for a European Accessibility Act

Autism-Europe published a response to the Commission’s proposal for a European Accessibility Act, outlining a number of key recommendations to ensure that the specific needs of autistic people are not overlooked in the future Directive.

Autism-Europe’s position paper highlights in particular the need for the Act to present clear and precise accessibility criteria for persons with disabilities, including autism. Detailed requirements are necessary for the legislation to be properly transposed by the member states and to ensure efficient harmonisation of accessibility of goods and services throughout the EU.
