NOPSEMA is currently working to ensure that this website is compliant with the International standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) which is known as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), currently at Version 2.0.  WCAG 2.0 has now been recognised as ISO 40500:2012. These guidelines describe how to make web-based content more accessible to people with disabilities. We are committed to ensuring compliance to Level AA of WCAG 2.0 in accordance with the Australian Government Digital Style Manual and the National Transition Strategy.  

About this website

The NOPSEMA website has been designed to be as inclusive as practicable. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall accessibility. In the meantime should you experience any difficulty with accessibility of any part of the NOPSEMA website, please don't hesitate to provide feedback to us, either by email at or by telephone at (08) 6188 8700.


This website has been developed using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. While the website should be operable in the latest version of any modern browser, best performance will be obtained using Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome. The website relies on having JavaScript enabled for a range of features, and is designed to be responsive on a range of screen resolutions.


Whilst NOPSEMA strives to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.

At the present time not all documents found on this website are fully accessible, with some of them being available only in a Portable Document Format (PDF). We are currently remediating web-based documents and this is an on-going process due to the large numbers of documents on the website.  If there is a document you require in a more accessible format, please contact NOPSEMA and we will endeavour to make it available to you as quickly as possible.

Accessibility assessment

The NOPSEMA website has been built using GovCMS, a system created to priorititise accessibility. Accessibility testing of the NOPSEMA website has been conducted using automated accessibility tools to help ensure the website meets WCAG 2.1 AA level of accessibility.
