The Fundación ONCE and UNE organise a workshop on accessibility of the built environment in Europe

04/03/2021

4 March 2021. The Spanish Association for Standardisation-UNE and ONCE Foundation will hold the virtual workshop 'Common accessibility criteria for the built environment: Outcomes of the M/420 mandate' on 22 March.

During the seminar, the key points of the new European standardisation documents on accessibility in the built environment will be presented, as well as how they will help users in their day-to-day life.

The European standardisation bodies CEN and CENELEC, within the CEN-CENELEC JTC 11, with the promotion and support of the European Commission, have just published the first European standard on accessibility of the built environment, EN 17210: 2021.

Shortly it will be complemented with two European Technical Reports on technical specifications to meet the functional requirements set out in the standard and on its conformity assessment.

The workshop is especially aimed at those responsible for public procurement, drafting legal regulations, designing buildings and public spaces, and anyone interested in having more accessible spaces.

The seminar will be held in English. There will be live international sign language interpretation and subtitles in English.
