This website is run by the National Business Crime Centre which is hosted by the City of London Police. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
The National Business Crime Centre, hosted by the City of London, is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.
The unit is small and the cost of a formal technical assessment would be greater than the unit expenditure budget.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
Third-party links to social media are not descriptive. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.4 Link Purpose (In Context).
PDFs and other documents
Many of our older PDFs and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards - for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value).
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility
Every new article is reviewed for accessibility and we continuously discuss improvements with our web developer. We conduct assessments using the
axe DevTools v4.46.2 tool at regular intervals to see if there are any improvements that can be made and we will consider any user feedback.
