Disproportionate Burden Assessments


Under the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018, organisations can claim 'disproportionate burden' where there is a genuine reason for not being able to comply with the regulations.

These claims should not be used lightly and require significant proof and an assessment to be defensible. Many organisations are coming under fire for claims made without supporting evidence.

We offer a comprehensive disproportionate burden assessment service which will provide you a full report of our findings with you organisation, the recommendation of status of disproportionate burden, guidance on what to include in your accessibility statement and remedial actions.
