Lack of accessibility due to disproportionate burden

For the following content, there is currently a disproportionate burden pursuant to Section 2(3) of the BfWebG in conjunction with Directive (EU) 2016/2102, Article 5 and Recital 39:

  • file downloads published before 23 Sept 2018 and which are not required for active administrative procedures (see Section 9 of the Verwaltungsverfahrensgesetz);
  • audio/video clips published before 23 Sept 2020;
  • maps, for which essential information is offered in an accessible alternative.

Enforcement procedure

You have made a query regarding the accessibility of our websites and mobile applications using the above contact. If no satisfactory solution is achieved within a reasonable period of time (usually four weeks), you can contact the office of the State Commissioner for the Inclusion of People with Disabilities (Enforcement Office) at the Saxon State Chancellery, which is responsible for the relevant enforcement procedure. When disputes arise between public bodies in Saxony and users of websites or mobile applications, the Enforcement Office strives to find an amicable solution without recourse to the courts. This arbitration procedure is free of charge and participants do not need to appoint legal counsel.
