Standardisation

Funka takes part in standardisation work at a national and European level. We are a firm believer in standardisation as a tool for development, besides being a good way of contributing to an exchange of knowledge between industry, academia, public sector and user organisations. Standardisation is one of several key factors necessary to generate momentum regarding a high degree of accessibility.

Some of the standards we have taken part in developing:

 

Accessibility in all standardisation

Funka joins the Swedish working group SIS TK 536 that will promote the coordination of accessibility issues in all standardisation.
