IS 5568 (Israel)

The IS 5568 is Israel’s standard regarding web accessibility since October 2017. The law is applicable to essential services and all business, with the exception of private contractors. Breach of duty to perform necessary adjustments to a website is a civil infraction in Israel under ERPD. In 1998, the Israeli Parliament passed the Equal Rights For Persons With Disabilities Law (ERPD) the purpose of which was to insure those with disabilities could achieve “active participation in society.”

A disabled individual is able to file suit against an entity maintaining a website that lacks accessibility standards. Similarly, an organization representing a group of disabled persons are able to file as a class action. Furthermore, the plaintiff does not have to prove any damages were incurred only that the site in question was not in compliance.
