Accessibility statement for the spacefinland.fi website
In the accessibility statement, we will explain how the spacefinland.fi website of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment and Business Finland complies with the Act on the Provision of Digital Services, what shortcomings exist in the accessibility of the website and how you can give us feedback on accessibility issues. We will take accessibility into account when developing the service.
How accessible is the website?
The Spacefinland.fi website meets the A and AA requirements of the WCAG 2.1 accessibility criteria required under the Act.
An external expert assessment of the website’s accessibility was commissioned in November 2021 in connection with the update of the website. Accessibility will be taken into account in the development of all new features. In addition, we regularly monitor the accessibility of the service through support programmes, for example, and address any content-related shortcomings in the service.
We also guide the space administration’s officials to take into account accessibility requirements in their work.
If the material you need is not accessible, please contact us by writing an email to spacefinland(at)gov.fi. We will deliver the material you need in an accessible format.
