Exemptions –

content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
You can find the complete list of  content exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations on legislation.gov.uk

  • PDF Documents: We may have a few, old PDF documents that don’t meet accessibility standards. For example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 Name, Role Value. The accessibility regulations don’t require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.
  • Video: We have one pre-recorded video published before 23 September 2020 which may require, but doesn’t include, audio description. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.2.5 Audio Description (Pre-recorded). We may not add audio description to this video because pre-recorded video published before 23 September 2020 is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations
