HM Inspectorate of Constabulary in Scotland (HMICS) commits to making its website accessible in line with the accessibility regulations. This statement, prepared on 29 April 2021 and reviewed on 25 May 2021, applies to HMICS.scot.
This website is partially not compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 (WCAG) A and AA success criteria.
This website was reviewed in December 2020 and will be subject to further review during the financial year 2021/22. When completed, we will publish an improvement plan of the improvements we will be making to our site and when this work will be completed.
Not compliant with the accessibility regulations
We know some parts of this website are not compliant with the accessibility regulations:
- PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software.
- Images contained within publications do not include alternative text. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).. This will be fixed in line with the timescales published in our Improvement plan.
Not within the scope of regulations
The accessibility regulations do not require us to update PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they are not essential to providing our services. Any new documents we publish following the publication of our Improvement plan will meet accessibility standards.
