Our website aims to be as inclusive as possible.
To achieve this aim, we have:
- followed the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Accessibility Initiative guidelines.
- tested the site with various diagnostic and evaluation tools.
The DNCL website has been developed to display adequately on all commonly used browsers.
We hope that this site is accessible to you. If you need assistance accessing any content or suggestions on how we can improve this site please contact us
Portable Document Format (PDF) is the open de facto standard for electronic document distribution worldwide. Adobe PDF is a universal file format that preserves all of the fonts, formatting, colours, and graphics of any source document, regardless of the application and platform used to create it. Adobe PDF files are compact and can be shared, viewed, navigated, and printed exactly as intended by anyone with the free Adobe Acrobat Software.
This format has been employed due to the nature of the documents, and the requirement for preserving their integrity.
Accessing scanned Acrobat documents
A large number of Acrobat (PDF) documents on the DNCL website are scanned images of hard copy documents submitted to the Commission. These files are not accessible to screen readers. If you need to access a document using a screen reader please contact us and we will convert the document to readable text for you.

Also, you can use your default web browser's screen reader extension e.g. Screen Reader for Google Chrome to interact with the DNCL website.
