related parts are filed under TELECOMMUNICATIONS  (page 36):

4.d)
**The adoption of the second version of the Web Content Accessibility
Guidelines*
*(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 Moreover, as WCAG 1.0 is becoming outdated a
recommendation*
*from the Commission could avoid that some Member states still apply
different*
*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.
