A couple of years back a white paper titled WEB ACCESSIBILITY POLICY MAKING: AN INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE was released. Though some of the policies have since changed - as in the case of Australia, it is still a great resource into the standards and best practices in over 15 countries

Subject: Examples of WCAG 2 implementations in national web guidelines?


We are working on implementing WCAG 2 in our national web guidelines
for public sector websites. The guidelines encompass more than
accessibility (user centric development process requirements, minority
language law requirements, various technical stuff).

I would be grateful for information on other national web guidelines
and how they have incorporated WCAG 2. As a portal requirement for a
specific level? Or did you implement a subset only (as indicated in [1])?

Was it a successful approach?
