This declaration on digital accessibility applies to the website of the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts published at https://hfmdk-cloud-application.academyfive.net/de/index.php.

As a public sector body within the meaning of Directive (EU) 2016/2102, we endeavour to

Hessian Disability Equality Act (HessBGG) and the Hessian Ordinance on Barrier-free Information Technology (HVBIT) for the implementation of Directive (EU) 2016/2102.

Status of compatibility with the requirements
The accessibility requirements are set out in Section 3 (1) to (4) and Section 4
of the HVBIT, which was issued on the basis of Section 14 of the HessBGG.

The review of compliance with the requirements is based on a self-assessment carried out in February 2023.
