New Zealand Government Web Standards and Recommendations

The New Zealand Government Web Standards (NZGWS) set out the requirements that New Zealand public sector websites must meet to make web-based information and services available to the widest possible audience.

Version 2.0 of the standard (for web projects initiated after 21 Oct 2009), adopts the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (level AA) as the basis for technical specification [1]. Website content writers, designers and developers must be familiar with the relevant checkpoints/success criteria of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines when undertaking web-based projects.
