Technical information about this website's accessibility

STFC is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance Status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.

Non accessible content

eData is a repository for the storage and publication of research data. Data files stored within the repository are likely to be complex; be stored in a variety of different formats; and may use specialist bespoke formats and/or proprietary file formats that may not be fully accessible.

We believe that making the data files fully accessible would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations.

We are always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we are not meeting accessibility requirements, please let us know by emailing: eData@stfc.ac.uk.
