Overview of Section 508 Requirements

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. 794d), as amended in 1998, is a federal law that requires agencies to provide individuals with disabilities equal access to electronic information and data comparable to those who do not have disabilities, unless this would impose an undue burden on the agency. The Section 508 Standards are the technical requirements and criteria that are used to measure conformance within this law.

Our Commitment

We are committed to making electronic and information technologies accessible to individuals with disabilities by meeting or exceeding the requirements of Section 508. Our approach to Section 508 compliance ensures people with disabilities have access which is comparable to those who do not have disabilities, and our commitment to accessibility includes content and online services provided through this website.

To meet this commitment we –

  • Include Section 508 standards and requirements in our procurement process
  • Include Section 508 standards and requirements in our development, implementation, and maintenance processes of our websites
  • Develop and provide technical guidance, tools, and resources to assist with Section 508 compliance throughout the Bureau
  • Train employees on the Section 508 standards and how to develop and buy accessible technology
  • Communicate and raise awareness throughout the Bureau
