Requests for providing the inaccessible information as well as complaints on the lack of accessibility may be submitted following the same procedure.
Everybody has the right to request the digital accessibility of a website, mobile application or an element thereof. One may also request the information with the aid of an alternative access method, for instance through reading out the inaccessible digital document, describing the content of a film with no audio-description etc. The request should contain the data of a person submitting the request, an indication which website or mobile application is concerned and the contact method. If the person requests the need to obtain the information via alternative access method, he/she should additionally specify a convenient method of revealing this information. The public entity should forthwith process the request, not later than within 7 days of the request being submitted. If compliance with the above deadline is not possible, the entity shall immediately inform the requester of the nearest possible date when the request may be processed, whereby this date shall not exceed 2 months from the request having been submitted. If providing digital access is not possible, the public entity may offer an alternative method of accessing the information. In case the public entity refuses to process the request of providing access or refuses to provide access via an alternative method, the requester may file a complaint on the lack of digital availability of a website, mobile application or an element thereof. Having exhausted all of the above methods, one may file an application with the Polish Ombudsman.
