According to the current CX guidelines, Consumer Experience Standards, Accessiblity, five Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) with 35 associated criterions are considered at a minimum as a MUST for compliance throughout the Consent Model.
Thirteen of those criterions possess a AAA conformance level. My question is are those AAA rated criteria still considered as a MUST requirement across the Consent Model, particularly in the context of the following WCAG note on conformance;
"Note: It is not recommended that Level AAA conformance be required as a general policy for entire sites because it is not possible to satisfy all Level AAA Success Criteria for some content." From https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/#cc1
In short, are Data Recipients and Data Holders required to conform with all cited WCAG guidelines and criteria within the Consent Model, regardless of their conformance level?
The accessibility standards state that participants must seek to comply with the specified WCAG items.
The addition of 'seek to' was included to provide flexibility to ADRs (Accredited Data Recipients) and DHs (Data Holders) in circumstances such as this one, where complying with an item is not appropriate or possible for certain aspects of the consent model.
