The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’).

Audit Wales is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Some images do not have a text alternative due to a recent website style change, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.2 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).
We plan to add text alternatives for all images by April 2024. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
At 200% zoom, the keyboard focus is not visible on the hamburger menu.
At 250% zoom, once expanded, the keyboard focus is not clearly visible on the dropdown menu. We plan to fix this by April 2024.
Some parts of our website may not display properly on Internet Explorer versions 6, 7 and 8. Microsoft no longer supports these versions. We recommend that you upgrade to a newer version or try a different browser, if you are experiencing any issues.
Some parts of our website may require the use of third-party software. Our website may also contain hyperlinks to external third-party websites, for your convenience. We have no control over the content published on third-party websites or their products. Please refer to the provider’s website for support information.
None at present.
Many documents on our website are not accessible in a number of ways including missing text alternatives and missing document structure.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. For example, we do not plan to fix documents older than 23 September 2018.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations [opens in new window].
We’ve recently updated our website to a newer version of Drupal after the previous version reached the end of its lifespan. We’ve also revamped the style of our website to provide a better user experience to all users.
Due to these recent updates we have not yet remedied these issues as, at the time they represented a disproportionate burden, in terms of both cost and resource.
We are committed to promoting digital inclusion, including through meeting the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines level 2.1 AA (WCAG 2.0) [opens in new window] success criteria.
Our new beta (test) site is currently being improved to meet WCAG 2.1. We will complete this work spring 2024.
This statement was prepared on 2 September 2020. It was last reviewed on 8 February 2024.
This website was last tested on 13 October 2023 against the WCAG 2.1 AA standard.
The test was carried out by the Government Digital Service.
A sample of pages were tested using automated testing tools by our website team. We have incorporated the elements from the Government Digital Service report that we received recently.
