Hello List,

Does anyone know of any Web accessibility certification process in the E.U., U.K., Canada, Australia or elsewhere? If there is any, what authority and acceptability does it have?   

The European Commission, in its 2005 Communication on e-Accessibility, indicated that they are examining accessibility compliance evaluation that could include certification and labeling by a third party. Any progress here?
