Latvian accessibility legislation



Regulation LV 2018/611 is the Latvian implementation of Directive EU 2016/2102. It is very similar to the European legislation, but it furthermore does not apply to the following content types:

  • Live streaming services of public service broadcasters.
  • Online maps and mapping services intended for navigation, if and only if essential information is provided in an accessible digital manner.
  • Reproductions of cultural heritage items where accessibility requirements are incompatible with the preservation of authenticity or where automated and cost-effective solutions are not readily available.
