Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due the non-compliances listed below:

  • Some of our Portable Document Formats (PDFs) and Powerpoint documents do not meet accessibility standards

We are working to improve these aspects of our website.

Content not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
