Planned activities 

We are continuing to work on fixing these accessibility problems and plan to action those items we can resolve by the end of this year [2020]. We plan to update this statement in January 2021. 

Some PDF files available from this website which are not currently appropriately accessible may take longer to fix as we may have to work with the original authors of those documents to implement the changes needed.

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they are not essential to providing our services.
