Section 508 and California Government Code Section 11135 provide for specific exceptions which are more completely described in the Accessible E&IT Procurement Implementation Plan (PDF).

Once you have reviewed the exceptions and have determined that your product(s) will qualify, complete the required forms and submit them to the Section 508 Compliance Specialist for consideration.

The Section 508 Compliance Specialist will work with you to help you determine if your product(s) qualify for an exception and will notify you when your exception request is approved or disapproved.

If an exception is approved, it is important to note that (except for Back Office), you must still provide an Alternative Means of Access to persons with disabilities.
