Accessibility statement: Annual report

The Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH) works constantly to improve the accessibility of the service. We will update the statement as accessibility problems are corrected.

The PRH is committed to making the online annual report accessible in accordance with the Finnish Act on the Provision of Digital Services (laki digitaalisten palvelujen tarjoamisesta 306/2019Open link in a new tab, lag om tillhandahållande av digitala tjänsterOpen link in a new tab).

How the accessibility statement was compiled

This statement was compiled on 14 September 2020. The statement is based on:

  • an assessment carried out by a third party
  • our own assessment that most of the problems the third party discovered in their assessment have been corrected according to the instructions of the third party.

The statement was last revised on 23 January 2024.

How accessible this service is

This online service is only partially compliant with the Finnish Act on the Provision of Digital Services 306/2019, due to the non-compliance listed below.

Inaccessible content

The following content or functions are not yet compliant with the requirements (according to the WCAG criteria), but the problems will be corrected:

  1. (WCAG 1.4.4) Increasing only the text size to 200 percent breaks up some of the elements in the service.
  2. (WCAG 1.3.1, accessibility in general) An incorrect attribute has been used in images and image links.

The annual reports 2018 - 2020 also include inaccessible content as follows:

  1. (Accessibility in general) The navigation structure is not logical. The navigation link names are not identical with the page headings.
  2. (WCAG 1.4.5, 1.1.1) There is text unnecessarily in image form.
  3. (WCAG 1.3.1, accessibility in general) The heading structure of the pages is not logical. The names of the navigation links and the target pages do not correspond to one another.
  4. (WCAG 1.1.1, 2.4.4) Not all visual elements have text alternatives.
  5. (WCAG 1.1.1, 2.4.4) The info graphics has no text alternatives.
  6. (WCAG 1.2.1) The annual report includes links to podcasts on the website that have no text alternatives.

The PRH will do its best to make the inaccessible content accessible during 2025.
