508 Compliancy for Public Facing Documents

Section 508 requires Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology (EIT) accessible to people with disabilities. The law applies to all Federal agencies when they develop, procure, maintain, or use electronic and information technology. Under Section 508 (29 U.S.C. '794 d), agencies must give disabled employees and members of the public access to information that is comparable to access available to others. NTIS offers remediation services for processing Section 508 compliant electronic documents. Learn more on Section 508 at www.section508.gov.
