Home page : Tools : Accessibility



The information and services included in the CIRCE website of the General Directorate of Industry and Small and Medium Enterprise will comply with the principles of accessibility and usability, established in Article 4 of the Law 11/2007 dated 22 June  on electronic access by citizens to public services, on the terms dictated by current legislation in this matter at all times.

The aim of the Directorate General of Industry and SME is to guarantee the accessibility of the contents of its CIRCE website (http://www.circe.es). Thus, this was designed to ensure it meets the standards and regulations currently in effect in matters of accessibility. Notwithstanding the above, it is possible that you may come across a page that does not fully meet these standards, as some of the sections contained in the portal use tools that do not comply with all the accessibility requirements. Thus, in the event you have any problem accessing the information contained in this website, please contact us through our accessibility mailbox [es] and we will endeavour to carry out the necessary improvements as quickly as possible.
