EC Preparing Law on Accessibility of Products to Persons with Disabilities

Published 03.12.2015.

Osobe s invaliditetom - ilustracijaThe European Commission proposed an accessibility law that will set common requirements for the accessibility of products and services to help persons with disabilities in the EU fully participate in society. The new law will benefit both persons with disabilities, the elderly, and others faced with challenges in daily life due to disability or some other reason, as well as companies that will not face obstacles in cross-border trade due to varying regulations. Around 80 million people with some form of disability live in the European Union, and their number is expected to increase significantly by the end of the decade due to the aging population. Assessments state that around 800,000 persons with disabilities live in Serbia. December 3rd is marked as the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

The products and services to be encompassed by the new European law were carefully selected in cooperation with citizens and civil society organizations, as well as companies. Among the products and services are ATMs and banking services, computers, telephones and TV equipment, audio-visual services, transport, e-commerce and e-books.

As stated by the EC, the accessibility of products is a condition for persons with disabilities to participate and have an active role in society. They also contribute to providing for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
