Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires Federal agencies to ensure that their
procurement of electronic and information technology takes into account the needs of all endusers, including people with disabilities.
Kyocera Mita is currently addressing Section 508 compliance by providing Voluntary Product
Accessibility Templates (VPATs) for all existing products, as well as developing and deploying
new products that comply with Section 508 provisions.
Each of our products have been put through a rigorous assessment process, applying the final
rule amending the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) Section 508 of the Rehabilitation
Act of 1973.
We hope that this information is helpful and demonstrates our commitment to meeting the
Section 508 requirements for people with disabilities and all other end-users
