Our website has been built with accessibility in mind, so we hope that you find this page and our site meets your needs and you are able to find the information you are looking for.

The Administrative Justice and Tribunals Council (AJTC) is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.

We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.

Web Accessibility Initiative

This website strives to achieve Triple-A accessibility of the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (WCAG 1.0), employing best practice techniques where certain Priority 3 checkpoints have become outdated.

The WCAG 1.0 explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people.

W3C Standards

This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for XHTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant XHTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.


Whilst the AJTC comply with known accessibility and usability guidelines, it is not always possible to do so to the letter of each checkpoint. Browsers and access technologies have outgrown many of the difficulties that once needed guidelines to overcome them, rendering some checkpoints obsolete.

In light of this, we are continually developing solutions that ensure the website conforms to the spirit of each checkpoint, bringing together a high standard of practical accessibility and usability throughout the website. The following exceptions are also in line with the new version of the accessibility guidelines to be released soon.

Access keys

Checkpoint 9.5 recommends providing keyboard shortcuts to important links, often called "access keys". However, these have also caused problems, and our own and other people's testing have demonstrated that they are best left off public websites.
