Complaints are examined by the FFG to establish whether they refer to infringements against the provisions of the Web Accessibility Act, and particularly to deficits in adherence to the requirement for accessibility on the part of the Federal Government or one of its agencies.
If the complaint is justified, the FFG has to issue recommendations for action to the Federal Government or the agency in question and propose measures which would contribute towards eliminating the existing deficiencies.
