The HI-TRON Mainz endeavors to make the website accessible in accordance with the national legal provisions for the implementation of Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and the Council. The legal basis is the Equal Opportunities for People with Disabilities Act ("Behindertengleichstellungsgesetz BGG") and the Barrier-Free Information Technology Ordinance ("Barrierefreie-Informationstechnik-Verordnung BITV") in their currently valid version.

As part of an internal accessibility check, however, it was found that the website does not yet guarantee complete accessibility. The HI-TRON Mainz is therefore working hard to further improve the barrier-free design of its website. We are continuously working on improvements.
