Web accessibility is about inclusive design — ensuring all people can access information, including people with disabilities and those using assistive technologies and devices.

All public service and non-public service agencies must meet the NZ Government Web Accessibility Standard 1.0. The NZ standard is based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, an international standard that has been adopted by governments around the world. This website has been built to meet those standards. The options made available here help a wide range of people to access the site and find information they require.
