Firms prepare for EU accessibility law
Taylor POS Dismount is the gold standard and world leader in true accessible POS Stands and Mounts for attended and unattended elements. Just as the U.S. in 2022 is implementing Accessible POS Mounting requirements, the EU has just announced the same accessibility initiatives into law when they adopted the CRPD. (As of October 2020, 182 nations and regional integration organizations have ratified the CRPD). As of December 2021, it has 163 signatories and 184 parties, 183 states and the European Union.
POS, ATMs, e-readers among products covered
Under the (EAA adopted CRPD) the EN 301 549:
The (European Accessibility Act) EAA covers a range of products and services that have been identified as important for those with disabilities.
Products covered by the directive include payment terminals, ATMs, ticketing and check-in machines, smartphones, and e-readers.
The services covered include communications, transport, banking, and e-commerce.
It is possible, probable that At-the-Pump will be included like the U.S., but did not see it called out in the announcement.
