EPA Accessibility Statement
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is committed to making its websites accessible to the widest possible audience, including people with disabilities, in accordance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. 794d). This webpage provides resources about EPA’s policies, accessibility requirements and the formal complaints process, in addition to other accessibility resources.
Section 508 is a federal law that requires agencies to provide individuals with disabilities equal access to electronic information and data comparable to those who do not have disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency.
The Section 508 standards are the technical requirements and criteria that are used to measure conformance within this law. More information on Section 508 and the technical standards can be found at:
If you would like to file a formal Section 508-related complaint, EPA handles 508 complaints the same way it handles other complaints related to disability discrimination. For more details, please consult:
If you have feedback or concerns related to the accessibility of any content on this website, please contact us.
