*Hey there,

the EU has another Doucment relating to the WCAG 2.0 published *31/03/2009named
2935TH TRANSPORT, TELECOMMUNICATIONS and ENERGY Council meeting - Brussels,
30 and 31 March
Documet in all EU related languages:

related parts are filed under TELECOMMUNICATIONS  (page 36):

**The adoption of the second version of the Web Content Accessibility
*(WCAG 2.0) by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) provides the necessary*
*technical specifications.*
*and 7. g)
**Adopt, and better implement measures, to promote e-accessibility, and
particularly to*
*implement the WCAG 2.0 guidelines. A common approach could be expressed*
*through a Recommendation from the Commission in order to avoid a fragmented
*European market. Moreover, as WCAG 1.0 is becoming outdated a
*from the Commission could avoid that some Member states still apply
*certification standards than recommended by the W3C (World Wide Web*
*Consortium (W3C).*

Hope i could provide some useful information. Please contact me if you need
some further information.
