This document provides a side-by-side comparison of the technical requirements of US Federal procurement standard for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) (‘Section 508’) versus the European Standard for accessible technology procurement (‘EN 301 549.’).
This document is intended for use by technical personnel who need to find out what the differences and similarities are between these two Priority Public Standards.

Elsewhere in this G3ict Accessible Procurement Portal there is additional background information on these two standards, and guidance to help decision makers on which standard is the most appropriate to adopt for their situation.
