>Dear All,

>You might remember that back in August, Irl-DeAN wrote to Tony Losty of
>NSAI, urging him to support the adoption of the draft EU standardisation
>mandate on "European accessibility requirements for public procurement
>of products and services in the ICT domain".
>
>The email below, which came from the European Disability Forum (EDF) by
>way of Dónal Rice, explains that the draft mandate was approved in
>December and is now to be put to the CEN Technical Board for vote. I've
>attached the CEN memo (PDF file). The EDF are asking people to lobby our
>CEN representative to make sure it goes through. We should carry on our
>good work by doing this.
>
>I guess we can write more or less a copy our original letter. From the
>info I've been given, it seems our CEN representative is Brian
>Cunningham of NSAI.

>Hugh, can you draft a letter?
