Preparation of the declaration

This declaration was prepared on 09.04.2021 and was last updated on 10.05.2022. We constantly review the status of accessibility; the most recent evaluation was on on 10.5.2022.

Degree of accessibility

The degree of accessibility is oriented on the international Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) at conformance level AA and the European standard EN 301 549, version 3.2.1. For PDF documents, we observe the international standard PDF/UA-1.

Our websites/mobile applications are only partially accessible according to the above guidelines.

Non-accessible content

  • PDF documents,
  • Navigation cannot be fully realised using a keyboard.
  • Archive areas are no longer updated, but are only kept for documentation purposes.

Lack of accessibility due to disproportionate burden

For the following content, there is currently a disproportionate burden pursuant to Section 2(3) of the BfWebG in conjunction with Directive (EU) 2016/2102, Article 5 and Recital 39:

  • In some cases, the contrast ratios are below the required minimum values, as the design of the project was developed before September 2018.


Please send us an email if you notice any barriers on our website or if you need information on contents that are not yet accessible. We will try to answer as soon as possible and provide you with the desired information in a form that is accessible to you.

Enforcement procedure

You have made a query regarding the accessibility of our websites and mobile applications using the above contact. If no satisfactory solution is achieved within a reasonable period of time (usually four weeks), you can contact the office of the State Commissioner for the Inclusion of People with Disabilities (Enforcement Office) at the Saxon State Chancellery, which is responsible for the relevant enforcement procedure. When disputes arise between public bodies in Saxony and users of websites or mobile applications, the Enforcement Office strives to find an amicable solution without recourse to the courts. This arbitration procedure is free of charge and participants do not need to appoint legal counsel.
