Hi Pina,

Thanks for your helpful reply. I totally agree with you but some entities and businesses value having a certification of compliance for many considerations. Its a tool to utilise and promote accessibility and influnce other businesses. It is possible to have tiers and categories for compliance, there shouldn't be a (100% accessible) certificate.

That is a good question. I know the Rick Hansen  Foundation has a
"certification" program and the Gates  program is now  part  of the G3 ICT -
IAAP program.
I also know of companies that do validate and assess but I don't believe
others who do this kind of work do certify full compliance as this in my
opinion is impossible to do. There are guidelines  and standards to follow
even for built, but achieving full accessibility still has a subjective
component that is difficult to grade.
Hope you find this helpful.

I hope everyone is doing great. I am wondering if anyone is familiar with
entities that certify compliance of buildings to universal design standards.
If I remember GAATES used to provide such certification  but not anymore.

Any suggestions?
