Hi,

Does anyone know anything about legislation regarding the 
accessibility of websites (including intranets) in Cyprus? I've 
searched several other sources on policy and legislation (see below), 
but Cyprus is usually not listed. Any pointers would be appreciated. 
(For example, if there is no legislation on accessibility of websites 
or other electronic media, is there any general anti-discrimination 
legislation that could be relied on?)

My sources:
* W3C WAI's webpage on policies relating to web accessibility:
   <http://www.w3.org/WAI/Policy/>
   Cyprus is not listed.
* Support-EAM's overview from 2005:
   <http://www.support-eam.org/Supporteam/Documentary/accessibility_policies.asp>
   Cyprus is not listed.
* ICDRI: Global Legal and Policy Resources:
   <http://www.icdri.org/Global%20Legal%20Resources/global_legal_resources.htm>
   Cyprus is not listed.
* The country profile at
   <https://countryprofiles.wikispaces.com/Cyprus+Riga+Accessibility>
   The page on e-Accessibility is empty.
* The "i2010 e-Inclusion Subgroup National Reports" from December 2007:
   <http://www.epractice.eu/files/download/i2010_eInclusion_Reports.pdf>
   Cyprus is not listed.

Best regards,
