What is a VPAT?
If you have created a digital product or service that is used by federal government employees or if you receive funding from the federal government, you need a VPAT® (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template®). A VPAT® is a document table that contains information about how an ICT (information & communications technology) product or service conforms with the refreshed version of Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act of 1973. It’s also common-practice to create a VPAT for any industry, it’s a key document that you can provide to potential clients and customers that outlines how your product is performing against Section 508 or WCAG standards.
