Skip to links

At the top of each page there are options to skip to various areas of the page. These features will assist users of screenreaders and will also assist users that view this site zoomed in close.

Document attachments

Where possible, pdf documents have also been provided in Microsoft Word format (.doc). In some cases we may not be able to provide Microsoft Word versions. For example, documents that have been produced by a third party such as submissions or scanned documents. In line with standard practice all document attachments will open into a new window. Sizes will only be specified for documents over 2MB.

Documents provided on this website can also be provided in other formats upon request. Contact us to request alternate document formats.


To assist with scanning content or users of assistive technologies, where ever possible hyperlinks allow the link text to be meaningful when read out of context.
The following best practice approach is taken for linking within our site:

  • All links to pages within the site where the menu is still available will open within the same window.
  • All links to attachments or external sites will open into a new window.

This approach allows users to set their browser options to open in new tab if this is preferred to opening in a new window.

Text resizing

Text on this site can be resized by:

  • using the zoom and increase font options from your browser’s menu;
  • press the Ctrl key (Microsoft Windows) or the Apple key (Mac OS) on your keyboard and use the + or – key to zoom in an out;
  • press Ctrl on your keyboard and scroll with your mouse wheel.


All images that are used to display a meaning will have alternative text available. Some browsers may also display a tooltip of this alternative text when the cursor hovers or focuses on the image. Images that are used for decorative purposes only do not contain any alternative text.


Where possible tables are only used to display tabular information and are not used for formatting. Row and column headings have been identified using HTML for use with assistive technologies. On our pages which display many publications we have chosen to display these publications in a tabular format to allow ease of access to multiple formats.
