ANEC considers that a European horizontal legislative framework should be established to cover the safety and quality of all tourism and transport services. Such a framework should apply also to more vulnerable consumers, such as children or older persons. This framework should be underpinned by formal standards. Moreover, ANEC stresses the need for CEN to put in place an effective strategy to ensure the balanced involvement of all relevant stakeholder groups in the development of any standards in this field, and in particular to ensure the involvement of organisations representing disabled or older persons.  

29/10/2009 Achieving Full Participation Through Universal Design. Council of Europe Report

Many Europeans with disabilities are unable to participate in important areas of society, simply because policies and the built environment are not designed to meet their requirements. Moreover, with the number of elderly people rapidly increasing, European societies will have to accommodate more and more disabled citizens in the future. This book invites member states to: promote full participation in community life by ensuring access to all areas of society, including the built environment, transport, products and goods, information, public service, education, employment and health care; implement Universal Design as a strategy to ensure equal and democratic rights in society for all individuals, regardless of age, abilities or cultural background, including persons with disabilities.
