Certify your website is accessible and reduce the risk of receiving an ADA website demand letter or complaint by getting your website “Certified Accessible by Accessible.org.” This is documentation that you can highlight in your accessibility statement and show that you follow best practices for ADA compliance and provide an inclusive digital experience.
Our Certification Process:
- Audit and Re-Audit: Accessible.org will conduct a thorough audit of your website, evaluating it against the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) at your desired conformance level (i.e., WCAG 2.0 AA, 2.1 AA, or 2.2 AA). After remediation, we will perform a re-audit to ensure that all accessibility issues have been addressed.
- Remediation: Our team of accessibility experts can work with you on the remediation process, either in-house or through a third party, to address any issues identified in the initial audit.
- Certification: Once the re-audit confirms that your website meets the chosen WCAG conformance level, Accessible.org will issue a statement of conformance and/or an independent certification. This certification includes a document featuring our “Certified Accessible” seal and a conformance statement, which you can link to from your accessibility statement.
Why Choose Accessible.org for Certification?
While no governing body or agent can provide an official “ADA website compliance certification,” receiving a conformance statement can serve as the practical equivalent. Our certification demonstrates that your website meets the stated WCAG conformance level, which is widely regarded as the benchmark for website accessibility.
By conforming to the latest version of WCAG, it becomes extremely difficult for anyone to argue that your website does not meet the “meaningful access” standard required by Title III of the ADA. In addition, following legal and practical best practices, such as posting an accessibility statement and engaging in periodic user testing and audits, shows that you have made every effort to ensure ADA compliance.
