Dear Derby College,
I am contacting you with regard to your website accessibility statement:
In the statement you claim disproportionate burden under Part 2 Section 7 of the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No.2) Accessibility Regulations 2018: https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2018....
As required by Part 2 Section 7 (2) of the regulations mentioned above, you were required to conduct an assessment of impacting factors before making the disproportionate burden claim. Information on the types of evidence expected in the assessment can be found in the latest monitoring report produced by GDS: https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio....
I have noticed that your disproportionate burden claim details issues which are already covered under the regulation exemptions.
Given that you made a claim in the accessibility statement dated 15/10/2021, please can you provide me with all documentary evidence that meets monitoring expectations which supports your disproportionate burden claim and shows that this is a distinct claim not already covered by regulations exemptions.
If you realise that your disproportionate burden claim has been made in error I would accept the alternate response showing that your accessibility statement has been updated to move incorrectly claimed elements to the “Content thats not within scope” section of the accessibility statement. For any claims that are not covered by exemptions I would obviously like the above documentation as mentioned.
Please find attached Derby College Group’s response to your Freedom of
Information request dated 5 September 2022.
