Declaration on Accessibility

This accessibility statement applies to the TU Hamburg website, which can be accessed via the entry link https://www.tub.tuhh.de.

The University Library is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities.

Our goal is barrier-free accessibility of this website in accordance with the Ordinance on the Creation of Accessible Information Technology for People with Disabilities (Hamburg Barrier-Free Information Technology Ordinance HmbBITVO) of September 10, 2019. The HmbBITVO is derived from the Barrier-Free Information Technology Ordinance (BITV 2.0 of September 12, 2011, amended on May 21, 2019).

Status of compatibility with the requirements

The accessibility requirements are derived from paragraph 1 HmbBITVO in conjunction with paragraphs 3(1) to (4) and paragraph 4 of the Federal BITV, which was issued on the basis of paragraph 11 HmbBGG.

Some parts of the content do not fully comply with the accessibility standard. We are making efforts to continuously reduce the identified deficits and shortcomings. Existing PDF forms are checked for accessibility and adapted when changes are made. A relaunch of the website is planned for spring 2023, during which a new theme will be used that takes accessibility into account.

Conciliation procedure

If a satisfactory solution has not been found even after you have sent feedback to the above-mentioned contact, you can turn to the conciliation board according to section 13 a HmbBGG. The conciliation board has the task to support an out-of-court dispute resolution in case of conflicts on the topic of accessibility between people with disabilities and public authorities. The conciliation procedure is free of charge. No legal counsel needs to be involved.

Currently, the Ombudsman’s Office of the Senate Chancellery is taking over the activities of the conciliation office, which has yet to be established.
