Information on the procedure
Everyone has the right to submit a request for digital access to the website, the mobile application or any of their elements. They may also request information to be made available through an alternative means of access, for example, by having a digitally unavailable document read out loud to them or having the content of a film lacking an audio description described to them. The request should contain the following information: contact details of the person making the request, an indication of the website or the mobile application concerned and a specification of the contact method with the person making the request. If the person making the request requires information to be made available via an alternative means of access, they should also specify a convenient manner for providing such information. Public entities should process requests immediately, no later than within seven days of the date the request is submitted. Should it prove impossible to meet such a deadline, they should immediately inform the person making the request when it will be possible to process the request. However, the deadline may not be longer than two months from the day the request is submitted. Should it prove impossible to ensure digital accessibility, public entities may propose an alternative means of accessing the information. If a public entity refuses to comply with the request to ensure access or an alternative means of accessing the information, you may file a complaint about the digital accessibility of the website, the mobile application or an element of the website or the mobile application. Once the above procedure has been exhausted, you may also submit a request to the Polish Commissioner for Human Rights.
The Commissioner’s website is available at https://www.rpo.gov.pl/.
