Accessibility guidelines

We adhere to the spirit of  the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 and recognize these guidelines as the international benchmark for building accessible websites.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines explain how to make websites more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformity to these guidelines also makes websites more user friendly for all people.

Web standards and technologies

This website has been built to conform to W3C standards for HTML and CSS. These technologies are relied upon throughout the site. The site displays correctly in all popular web browsers, and degrades gracefully in older browsers.

In addition this website uses JavaScript and occasionally links to third-party documents using PDF Technology. These technologies are not relied upon and the website works perfectly well without them. Where JavaScript has been used, the content meets the same high levels of accessibility as the rest of the site.
