Latest version of this statement: December 16, 2020

The smac makes every effort to make its website https://www.smac.sachsen.de accessible.

The standards for accessibility are the guidelines for accessible web content (WCAG – Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) 2.1 at level AA, which were published as W3C Recommendation  (Web Standard) (criteria of the Eruopean standard EN 301 549, version 2.1.2) as well as the further developed BITV 2.0 (barrier-free Information Technology Regulation).

The following content is only partially accessible:
