New Zealand Human Rights Act compliance
New Zealand enacted the Human Rights Act in 1993, which proscribes discrimination of individuals both by the government and public agencies and private entities.
However, the law does not specify non-discriminatory digital guidelines for accessibility standards, leaving private enterprises free from remediating their websites.
In 2019, the government passed new regulations that compel government agencies to meet Web Accessibility Standard 1.1. The specifications stipulate the WCAG 2.1 Level AA as the compliance standard.
