Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared on September 23rd, 2022 and last reviewed on September, 11th 2023. The basis for issuing this accessibility statement is a self-assessment carried out by TU Dresden.

Compliance status

We have a very extensive and diverse web presence with a large number of documents and content. This was published before September 23rd, 2018 and therefore does not correspond to the current state of accessibility.

As the project has been finished since 09/2018, no further development work will be carried out on the website; moreover, no content will be updated or new content posted. The website or the content published on it is not part of an active administrative process, but serves only archival purposes.

This website is not compliant with the requirements of the BfWebG in conjunction with BITV 2.0. The non-compliances and/or exemptions are listed below.
