Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz is committed to making the websites of its domain “” as accessible to all users as possible. The legal basis for this is the LGGBehM (Landesgesetz zur Gleichstellung behinderter Menschen / State Law on Equal Opportunities for Disabled Persons) and the BITV RP (Barrier-Free Information Technology Ordinance of Rhineland-Palatinate).

This statement was created on September 23, 2020.

Current conformity with the requirements of the BITV RP

The websites of the domain "" are currently designed to be as barrier-free as possible within the scope of technical feasibility. During the upcoming university-wide website relaunch, the aim will be to further adapt the frame layout and provide for barrier-free access. Earlier adjustments to the design of the website than that planned would represent a disproportionate burden on Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz as defined in Art. 7 Par. 3 LGGBehM, thus making it currently exempt from the obligation to provide the barrier-free access specified in Art. 7 Par. 1 LGGBehM.
