IS 5568 (Israeli Standard)
Israeli Standard 5568 is Israel’s web accessibility standard. It follows WCAG 2.0 Level AA.
Anyone who provides a service to the general public must conform to IS 5568. This includes governmental organizations, private organizations, and non-profit organizations; all were required to be in compliance by November 2018.
Sanctions for violations of IS 5568 are laid out under the Equal Rights for Persons with Disabilities Law, 5758-1998, and include fines. The standard and laws governing it are enforced by the Israeli Ministry of Justice.
What do I have to do to comply?
To comply with IS 5568, your website, digital documents, or application must meet the IS 5568 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Level AA, which is identical to the W3C Organization’s WCAG 2.0 Level AA.
