Accessibility statement 


We strive to make the website accessible in accordance with the Web Accessibility Act (WZG), as amended, implementing Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 October 2016 on barrier-free access to the websites and mobile applications of public sector bodies (Official Journal L 327, 2.12.2016, p. 1). This accessibility statement applies to the website


Efforts to support accessibility


We are committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with impairments. We continuously improve usability for all visitors to our web offerings and apply the appropriate accessibility standards. Furthermore, we involve people with impairments in our quality process at regular intervals.


Conformance status


This website is partially compliant with compliance level AA of the "Web Accessibility Guidelines - WCAG 2.1" and with the applicable European Standard EN 301 549 V2.1.2 (2018-08), respectively, due to the following incompatibilities and exceptions.


Non-accessible content 


Despite our efforts, some areas of our website are not barrier-free. The content of our website that is currently not barrier-free is listed below.

Please contact us as soon as you encounter a problem that is not included in this list.


a) Incompatibility with accessibility regulations


In some cases, WCAG accessibility criterion 2.4.4 (link purpose) is not met.

In order for important information and links to be found by the user in multiple places, links are occasionally provided multiple times on a page. (e.g., in the navigation and in the footer area of the page).

Since this success criterion is only broken by single, especially highlighted links, we decided not to remove these multiple links for usability reasons.

On individual pages, HTML is used to format content. This does not meet WCAG success criterion 1.3.1. (info and relationships). In the CMS system used and the editor available there, certain elements (e.g. column width of tables) are formatted via "inline" style information. In areas where this formatting could be replaced with reasonable technical effort, this was replaced by corresponding CSS rules (Cascading Stylesheets).


b) Disproportionate load


PDF documents


Some older PDF and Office documents are not accessible. If you urgently need a PDF document or if you become aware of content that you urgently need and that is also technically inaccessible to you, please contact us at

We have set ourselves the goal of offering accessible online forms in place of PDF documents as far as possible.

The range of accessible online forms is constantly being expanded.
