This accessibility statement applies to the website (the subdomains of this website will have their own accessibility statements). Compliance status This website is partially compliant with Royal Decree 1112/2018, of September 7, due to the non-compliance of the aspects indicated below.  


Content not accessible The content below is not accessible for the reasons stated. Lack of conformity with Royal Decree 1112/2018, of September 7:

  • There are logos and images with incorrect or confusing alt text and complex images without textual description (requirement number Non-textual content, of UNE-EN 301549:2022).
  • There are incorrectly created lists (without a list label), tables with incorrectly labeled cells and invisible labels in form elements (requirement number Information and relationships, of UNE-EN 301549:2022).
  • There are tables not adapted to small screen sizes and form fields that are not displayed correctly on small screen sizes (requirement number Text readjustment, of UNE-EN 301549:2022).
  • There is text that when changing the spaces and line heights is not displayed correctly (requirement number Text spacing, of UNE-EN 301549:2022).
  • There are elements that are not accessible by keyboard, such as social media links, the text editor for comments, elements for sorting search results, pagination of search results or calendar arrows (requirement number Keyboard, from UNE-EN 301549:2022).
  • There are elements that do not receive focus and therefore cannot be interacted with using the keyboard, for example (requirement number Order of focus, from UNE-EN 301549:2022).
  • There are links where their function is not correctly identified (they have an inadequate description, a text that is too generic, an inadequate title…) (requirement number Purpose of the links, of UNE-EN 301549:2022).
  • There are headers with repeated and/or poorly descriptive text (requirement number Headers and labels, of UNE-EN 301549:2022).
  • There are images, infographics, link or button texts, headline text and content that are not translated into other languages ​​(requirement number Language of the parties, of UNE-EN 301549:2022).
  • On some pages, the same icon is being used for different purposes, which creates confusion (requirement number Consistent identification, of UNE-EN 301549:2022).
  • There are poorly descriptive error messages, or error messages that are not grouped into a single message as well as a lack of suggestions in the form to fill in the fields correctly (requirement number Identification of errors, from UNE-EN 301549:2022).
  • There are forms with mandatory fields where the user is not informed, as well as fields where a textual example of the field’s format is missing (such as the DNI) (requirement number Labels and instructions, of UNE-EN 301549:2022).
  • There are form fields where the error is reported when an incorrect value is entered but no suggestion for correction is reported (requirement number Suggestions for errors, from UNE-EN 301549:2022).
  • There are pages with syntax errors and therefore some support product may not interpret the content correctly (duplicate page IDs, unclosed tags, incorrect construction of tags…) (requirement number Processing, of UNE -EN 301549:2022).
  • There are pages where supporting products will not be able to obtain information, interact, and be aware of the state of user interface controls, such as help messages, action result status messages, attributes of ‘links, page language image… that cannot be read by screen readers at the time they appear (requirement number Name, function, value of UNE-EN 301549:2022).
  • There may be occasional editing errors on some web pages, both in HTML content and in final documents, published after September 20, 2018 (date of entry into force of Royal Decree 1112/2018, of September 7) . Specifically, there may be errors in those documents that contain graphics, complex tables or those that are electronically signed before their accessibility review.
