Web standards

ACIAR is working towards a fully accessible website in line with the Australian Government’s Web Accessibility National Transition Strategy.

We will be using the W3C standards - a set of global standards designed to make content available to everyone.

We will also be following the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Accessibility Initiative guidelines and the Australian Government Information Management Office’s mandatory requirements for Australian Government agencies.


Some material on this site is available in PDF format. We use PDFs because they are portable, printable and can be reasonably accessible.ACIAR outsources the design and creation of our publications but requests that our publishers comply with accessibility standards. We are currently investigating providing accessible word format as an alternative for our publications.

If you require an accessible version of any document on our website please contact us.
