Accreditation is a process by which an organization submits to a voluntary evaluation to determine whether it meets the defined norms of quality. Accreditation by Mada represents the highest standard of e-Accessibility in Qatar. By submitting to a review under the National Website Accessibility Accreditation Program developed by Mada, organizations emphasise their commitment to not only be socially responsible, but also to be innovative and competitive in the marketplace.
On completion of the accreditation process, organizations will receive one of three accreditation badges from Mada for display on their websites.
The National Website Accessibility Accreditation Program offers three levels:
Level 1 – Access Planning
An Access Planning badge is awarded to an organization that agrees to implement an action plan to improve accessibility of their website based on audit reviews, and following staff training, and implementation of policy and processes.
Level 2 – Access Certified
This level of recognition is available for websites that achieve basic standards outlined in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 priority level A and AA. The website and its accreditation are renewed annually following review and validation.
Level 3 – Access Award
The highest level of accreditation is awarded to websites that demonstrate accessibility in a manner that goes beyond the standards outlined in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 priority level AA. In such instances, websites feature innovate solutions in the areas of user functionality.
