What we stand for

FCS ACCESSIBILITY POSITION

  • Government must adopt pro-competitive policies that encourage marketplace solutions and rapid deployment of accessible technologies.
  • Government should temper current initiatives with the Go On UK charity and similar consumer groups by reference to industry stakeholders to ensure proportionate best-in-class solutions are delivered without creating unrealistic cost burdens on business.
  • Proactive discussions with the disability community and other stakeholders should lead to the incorporation of accessible solutions into member companies’ product development process.
  • The government should promote the further development of voluntary industry standards to address accessibility needs.
