UK COI update
The UK’s COI (Central Office of Information) has issued Browser testing guideline TG117 [link (new page)] this January. It has been updated to substantially address the OSC’s issues with their previous direction during public consultation.
Their guideline is “for all website managers, web developers and web testers delivering public sector websites…” and includes the following statement: “The guidance on minimum technical standards highlights the importance of developing websites to standards to ensure browser accessibility.” The OSC welcomes this.
The OSC is specifically acknowledged in the new guidance.
