The request should include the contact details of the person making the request; indication of the website of the public entity to be accessed digitally; indication of the method of contact with the person submitting the request; indication of alternative means of access, if applicable.
Provision of digital accessibility of the website of a public entity shall be done without undue delay, no later than within 7 days of receipt of the request.
If provision of the aforementioned digital accessibility is not possible within 7 days, the public entity shall promptly notify the person submitting the request about the reasons for the delay and the date on which digital accessibility will be possible; however, the new date shall not be longer than two months from the date of receipt of the original request.
If the public entity is unable to provide digital accessibility as requested, it shall promptly notify the person making the request about the reasons why digital accessibility cannot be provided and shall indicate alternative means of accessing the information.
In the event of a refusal to provide digital accessibility, or in the event that the person making the request refuses to use alternative means of access, a complaint about the failure to provide the digital accessibility to the website may be filed against the public entity.
After all options have been exhausted, the complaint can also be sent to the Ombudsman.
