Accessibility Statement

The British Antarctic Territory Administration is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology and ability.

This website meets the WCAG 2.1 AA standard and has been designed and built in such a way to ensure information is accessible.

While we continually strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website particularly where there are links to information or further information held by a third party. Information, which may have limited accessibility at present are:

  • Full wording of the Antarctic Treaty (PDF document linked from to the Antarctic Treaty Secretariat (ATS) website)
  • Antarctic yachting guidelines (PDF document)

If you have any difficulty viewing the content of this site do let us know so that we can look to address this. Contact polarregions@fco.gov.uk where we can provide you with an alternative, accessible version.
