The Energy Rating website is committed to providing accessible information to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. Accessibility and usability have been key elements considered in the development of our website. They have been designed to meet Australian Government standards, including those that relate to access for people with disabilities. Departments are also required to make online resources accessible to people with technical constraints, such as older browsers and lower speed Internet connections.
As per the guidelines set by the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the Web Accessibility National Transition Strategy, all government websites are required to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.0.
This Energy Rating website meets these Australian Government standards by complying with all Level A and AA requirements of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, Version 2.0. This website has been developed to display adequately on all commonly used browsers and to work effectively with assistive technology. This site is also designed to display appropriately on mobile and tablet devices.
Disability Action Plan
We completed an accessibility audit in 2014 to ensure our website meets accessibility requirements. This work remains ongoing and we have developed a Disability Action Plan to address these requirements.
