Navigating the Accessibility Strengthening Act (BFSG): What You Need to Know

CMS Admins recently shared a blog post on the impending Accessibility Strengthening Act (BFSG).1 Despite its promulgation in July 2021, companies have been in a transition period to implement crucial accessibility measures. Set to come into force on June 28, 2025, the BFSG aims to make everyday activities equally accessible to individuals with disabilities. 

Whether placing an order in a shop or purchasing a ticket, the law emphasizes the need for companies to provide comprehensive accessibility solutions. This can range from transcripts and audio subtitles for product videos to Braille information on packaging and inclusive assembly instructions. Learn more about the BFSG and its implications by delving into the detailed insights in the blog post.

  • 1BFSG stands for Barrierefreiheitssstärkungsgesetz in German or the Barrier-Free Accessibility Strengthening Act in English. BFSG is the German implementation of the European Accessibility Act (EAA). The EAA is an EU directive that sets minimum accessibility standards for products and services. The EU had decided on specific requirements for barrier-free design of digital services in 2019.
