Commitment Statements and VPATs

When you work with Perkins Access, we’ll help you document your commitment to accessibility, with a Commitment Statement and/or a VPAT (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template), or other regulatory accessibility statement.

Making these documents available to the public demonstrates to your customers, shareholders and others that accessibility is a priority for your organization. It can also help protect you from litigation. Perkins is known worldwide for its accessibility expertise, so our name on these documents lends credence.

Commitment statements

We’ll author or help you craft a statement describing the steps you’ve been taking to address accessibility with Perkins Access, including the fact that you’re evaluating your products with native users of assistive technology. A good commitment statement also addresses the fact that accessibility is an ongoing process, not a one-time fix.

VPATs

A VPAT provides a detailed analysis of your conformance to WCAG accessibility standards. It’s important to complete this document correctly and to update it over time to reflect where you are in your accessibility journey. Perkins Access can work with you on other accessibility statements as well, including those for UK government accessibility regulations.
