Accessibility is fundamental to SupplierAssurance. We continue to work to ensure the Service can be used by everyone.

We comply with UK government's minimum recommended standard of WCAG 1.0 Level AA.


Accessibility statement

The following features and set of principles help to ensure that SupplierAssurance can be used by everyone.


Access keys

The ability to navigate the site using other means than a mouse can be important for those who have difficulties using a mouse or other pointing devices. To help with this we have set up 'Access Keys' (see below) on the site which allow easy navigation to the main pages on the web site.

As well as helping those who have difficulty using a mouse it also allows quick access to the main pages for anyone who prefers to use the keyboard. To use the access keys on the site follow these steps:

Press and hold the 'Alt' key

Press the required character

If necessary, release all keys and press the return key. The browser will then load the relevant page.

To use the access keys when using Firefox, hold 'Alt' and 'Shift' combined with the desired access key.

Government standard:

  • 1 - Homepage
  • 6 - Help
  • 8 - Terms & Conditions

In addition to standard UK Government access keys we have added some of our own specific to SupplierAssurance

  • D - Dashboard (when logged in)
