Section 508 Certification

About Section 508

Millions of US citizens must use assistive technology (AT) in order to read electronic content.

To meet their needs and to ensure equal access to information, the US Congress enacted legislation in 1998 to require U.S. Federal agencies and contractors to procure accessible software and to produce accessible electronic documents.

The regulations, known as Section 508, went into effect in June, 2001.

How we can help you

We correct and certify PDF files to ensure compliance with Section 508. Results are guaranteed, as is a high-quality reading experience for assistive-technology users. This service is offered by quotation for each document processed.

To get started with a quote for remediation and certification, simply email representative files to section508@appligent.com. We’ll respond with a comprehensive cost within 24 hours.

What you need to know about PDF and Section 508

PDF files cannot be validated for compliance with Section 508 by currently available automation. There are two basic options.

  1. Structure the document correctly in your authoring software and be sure to make tags when creating the PDF, then check the resulting file for compliance OR
  2. When option 1 is unavailable, you must tag and otherwise manage the accessibility of your PDF files after creation.

The results of any tagging effort must be checked (and when necessary, corrected) by a trained individual to assure compliance with the law.

Do you represent a Federal agency? Please see go to our websitefor details on how our deliverables meet Section 508 requirements.
