Declaration of accessibility

The Podlasie Museum in Białystok ensures the accessibility of its website in accordance with the regulations of the Act of 4 April 2019 on the digital accessibility of websites and mobile applications of public entities (Journal of Laws 2019, item 848).

The declaration of accessibility applies to the website:

Website publication date: 11 December 2020.

Date of the last major update: 11 December 2020

The website mentioned above has been prepared in accordance with the WCAG 2.1 standards and meets the requirements of digital accessibility of public entity websites.

Despite the best efforts, certain materials published on the website are insufficiently accessible, due to the fact that:

– they have been made before the entry of the Accessibility Act into force;

– adaptation thereof requires greater financial expenses.

The declaration has been prepared on the basis of a self-assessment conducted by the public entity.
