Accessibility statement

This accessibility statement applies to the website of the National Coordination Centre for Cyber Security in Industry, Technology and Research (NCC-DE) published at

As a public body within the meaning of Directive (EU) 2016/2102, we endeavour to make our websites accessible in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Disability Equality Act (BGG) and the Barrier-free Information Technology Ordinance (BITV 2.0) for the implementation of Directive (EU) 2016/2102.

Status of compatibility with the requirements

The accessibility requirements are set out in Sections 3 (1) to (4) and 4 of BITV 2.0, which was issued on the basis of Section 12d BGG.

The review of compliance with the requirements is based on a self-assessment carried out on 16 February 2021.

Based on the review, the website is partially compliant with the aforementioned requirements due to the following incompatibilities.

  • Older PDF downloads may not be accessible. PDF files uploaded at a later date will be created in an accessible version or replaced by such a version as soon as possible.
  • PDF downloads from third parties may not be barrier-free. External parties are required to make these accessible.
  • Partly subtitles for videos. We endeavour to add subtitles to newly posted videos as soon as possible after publication.
  • Partly audios and podcasts. We endeavour to provide text alternatives as quickly as possible for newly posted audios and podcasts.
  • The captcha query is not barrier-free.
