ADA (Section 508)
Esri Accessibility Conformance Report
The Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) also known as an Accessibility Conformance Report is a template used to document a product's conformance with accessibility standards and guidelines. The purpose of the VPAT is to assist customers and buyers in making preliminary assessments regarding the availability of commercially available Information and Communication Technology (ICT) products and services with features that support accessibility.
On March 20, 2017, the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board) revised, updated, and combined standards for ICT developed, procured, maintained, or used by federal agencies covered by Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Section 255 of the Communications Act of 1934. The revisions and updates to these standards are intended to ensure that electronic media is accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.
