G&O’s website has been developed with the content management application, which allows the creation and management of accessible web sites.

After undergoing technical accessibility analysis, it has been established that G&O’s website has the priority rating 1 and 2, as established by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 of W3C (known as the WAI-WCAG standards.)
