You might want to have a look at the work undertaken by the EU funded SupportEAM project:
http://www.support-eam.org/supporteam/default 

Included on the project site are the results of a stakeholder survey on the need for European
eAccessibility certification:

I hope this helps

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? 

Thanks,
Sailesh Panchang
