NZ Government Web Standards
Effective 01 July 2013, there are two web standards that Government organisations need to meet, the Web Accessibility Standard and the Web Usability Standard.
The Web Standards are being revised to incorporate WCAG 2.1 and feedback from the Government Web Community—give your views on the proposed changes.
This report helps government agencies understand how accessible and easy to use their websites are, and what the main user experience issues are.
All public service and non-public service agencies must meet the NZ Government Web Accessibility Standard.
All public service and non-public service agencies must meet the NZ Government Web Usability Standard.
The Web Accessibility Standard and Web Usability Standard require that NZ Government organisations be prepared to assess and report on their conformance with those Standards. This includes submitting a risk assessment and management plan regarding any areas of non-conformance.
