Introduction to the Declaration
Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences (ICSC PAS) is committed to making its website (http://www.ik-pan.krakow.pl) accessible, in accordance with Act of 4 April 2019 on digital accessibility of websites and mobile applications of public sector bodies (Official Journal of Laws of 2019, item 848) and Commission implementing decision (EU) 2018/1523 of 11 October 2018, establishing a model statement on the accessibility of the websites and mobile applications in accordance with Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council and considering the requirements for public sector bodies.
This accessibility statement applies to the website http://www.ik-pan.krakow.pl
Publication and update dates
The date of the publication of the website: 2011.11.30
The date of the last update of the website: 2020.01.20
Status of compliance with the law
The website of ICSC PAS (http://www.ik-pan.krakow.pl) is partially compliant with provisions of Act of 4 April 2019 on digital accessibility of websites and mobile applications of public sector bodies, due to the non-compliances listed below:
the website does not support a change of font sizes,
images published on the website have no alternative description,
some pdf files are not accessible digitally.
pdf files non-accessible digitally are most frequently documents accessible to the staff members, were published before 23 September 2020 or are not used in tasks currently performed,
images having no alternative description were published before 23 September 2018, are of promotional nature and are not used in tasks currently performed.
The Institute’s present website was created and made operational in 2007. It was updated over many years but, due to an outdated CMS system, its further updating has ceased to be cost-effective. Therefore, as a whole, the website does not comply with all requirements of Act of 4 April 2019. The new website, compliant with accessibility requirements for persons with disabilities, is currently developed. The new website should be ready by end of December 2020.
Preparation of this accessibility statement
The statement was prepared: 2020.04.17
The statement was prepared on the basis of a self-assessment done by the public sector body.
The website of ICSC PAS (http://www.ik-pan.krakow.pl) supports the handling of standard keys and shortcut combinations (access keys), depending on the web browser and operating system installed.
