ISO 30071-1 is an international process-oriented Standard enabling organisations to embed accessibility considerations into their “business as usual” processes. The new Standard adapts and extends its predecessor, British Standard BS 8878, which it supersedes.
- understand why digital inclusion and accessibility makes good business sense
- embed accessibility responsibility strategically across key job roles, and into key organisational and technical policies
- embed accessibility into the software development lifecycle process for their products to ensure the accessibility impact of key development decisions is not missed, and that accessibility is delivered in the most efficient way
- adopt an informed way of making and documenting these decisions to provide a log that can be used for monitoring accessibility risk and proving conformance with the Standard
- provide guidance on finding or researching detailed accessibility requirements for a wide range of digital products including: websites, mobile apps, VR/AR apps, smart speaker apps, kiosk apps, apps on in-flight and in-car entertainment systems, games on games consoles, and software in ATMs and Electronic Point of Sales systems
ISO 30071-1 puts important activities such as technical, design and testing elements of accessibility in a framework to ensure all aspects of an organisation’s activities that impact accessibility & inclusion are covered. It helps organisations to make inclusive design part of their ‘business as usual’ by embedding accessibility considerations into:
- procurement and selection of production tools and content management systems.
- outsourcing production to third parties.
- assessment of accessibility risk and impact on budgets.
- governance of inclusion across a portfolio of evolving digital products.
