Enforcement procedure

In the event of unsatisfactory responses from the above contact option, you may contact the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) with limited liability (FFG) by means of a complaint. The FFG accepts complaints electronically via the contact form.

The complaints are examined by the FFG to determine whether they relate to violations of the requirements of the Web Accessibility Act, in particular deficiencies in compliance with accessibility requirements, by the federal government or an institution attributable to it. If the complaint is justified, the FFG must issue recommendations for action to the federal government or the legal entities concerned and propose measures to remedy the deficiencies at hand.
