Section 508 Compliance
Section 508 Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Refresh
Final Rule Published: January 18, 2017
Compliance: January 18, 2018
What Does This Mean to ENMU?
Like the original 508 Standards, the updated 508 Standards (WCAG 2.0 AA) apply to a federal agency's (and those receiving federal funding) full range of public-facing content, including websites, documents and media, blog posts, and social media sites. The final rule also specifically lists the types of non-public-facing content (including intranets, emails, and any official ENMU communications) that must comply. This includes electronic content used by a federal agency for official business to communicate:
- Emergency notifications
- Initial or final decisions adjudicating administrative claims or proceedings
- Internal or external program or policy announcements
- Notices of benefits
- Program eligibility
- Employment opportunities or personnel actions
- Formal acknowledgements or receipts
- Questionnaires or surveys
- Templates or forms
- Educational or training materials
- And web-based intranets
