The objective of the study is to collect information on the monitoring methodologies for verification of compliance with Web accessibility requirements in the different Member States. Firstly, this will require analysis of the responsibilities of bodies conducting the monitoring exercises including the reception of the complaints regarding non-compliance. Secondly, the study will collect information on the monitoring methodologies, in particular tools and techniques used, the amount of human and automatic testing, types of websites covered, the specific requirements analysed, the parts of the websites analysed. This should also include the information on the frequency of the monitoring, the size of the samples as well as on the related costs.
Thirdly, the abovementioned collection of information on the methodologies for verification of compliance with Web accessibility will entail a collection of data from the bodies responsible for monitoring. For comparison, the study will analyse a smaller set of methodologies, data gathering and the data themselves executed by non-governmental or private sector organisations which are not accountable to the government for the monitoring.
Finally, the study should also include information on the existing mobile accessibility testing guidelines of the public administrations in the different Member States.
