This provides a comprehensive framework to help all private enterprises, public sector and not-for-profit organizations ensure that disabled people’s needs are considered throughout the lifecycle of a product or service.
The goal of the standard is to meet the needs of consumers of diverse age and capability in a wide range of contexts because appropriate access to information, products, services and facilities is a fundamental human right. Mainstream products and services often fail to meet the needs of all who could benefit from them, sidelining some potential customers to specialist providers.
How will the inclusive design guidelines help?
The new guidelines will help businesses to be inclusive so, for example, someone with a hearing loss will be able to buy a telephone in a mainstream store and choose the product and brand they prefer.
