SBS Webinar on 
European Accessibility Act and Standards – what SMEs need to know

22 November 2022, 09:30 - 11:00 (online)


SBS is organising a webinar on accessibility of products and services in view of the latest standardisation requests by the European Commission and the review of other already existing standards. The purpose of the webinar is to raise awareness of SMEs and SME organisations for accessibility standards and the potential impact it might have on SMEs.

As first speaker we will welcome Ms. Inmaculada Placencia Porrero, Senior Expert of the European Commission’s social affairs unit, responsible for Disability and Inclusion, who will give an overview on the European Accessibility Act and the current standardisation requests. We will then welcome Mr. Rudolph Brynn, SBS Expert in the area of accessibility, working for a company giving advice related to universal design of building and outdoor areas, digital accessibility and usability, legislation and standards. He will present the activities of SBS in this context and point out what is important for SMEs to know and how they might be affected.

The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session.
