Everyone has the right to request the digital accessibility of a website, mobile application or any of their elements.

Access to information may also be requested through an alternative means of access, for example by having a digitally inaccessible document read, the content of a film with no audio description described, etc.

The request should contain the data of the person submitting it, an indication of which website or mobile application it refers to and how to contact the person.

If the requesting person reports the need to receive information by means of an alternative method of access, they should also specify a manner of presenting such information that is convenient for them.

The public entity should execute the request immediately, not later than within 7 days from the date of the request. If it is not possible to meet this deadline, the public entity shall immediately inform the person making the request about when it will be possible to meet the request, and the deadline may not be longer than 2 months from the date of submitting the request.

Architectural accessibility

  1. Entry to the check area in the GUM building is through the turnstiles (trypods) of the access control system (SKD) with electronic access cards which are also passes for the Office staff. Guests and clients are served during the office hours by the reception located at the main entrance to the GUM building off ul. Elektoralna. Such persons may enter and remain on the premises of the Office when holding a "Guest" pass if accompanied by a full-time GUM employee. This type of pass is issued upon presentation of an identity document of a given person and only to GUM staff who are entitled to serve clients.
  2. Due to the fact that the GUM building is a historic one and any architectural and construction alterations may only be made with the permit of an authorized Listed Site Conservator, it is not possible at the moment to have platforms, chairs or other elements that would be helpful for disabled persons fitted. The building provides access to two lifts: a service lift and passenger lift. The only way for disabled people is to go through two courtyards to the passenger elevator, which goes down to level "0".
  3. In front of the GUM building at Elektoralna st. there are generally accessible parking spaces for disabled persons in the city's paid parking zone. Internal GUM car parks are primarily for GUM and OUM vehicles and the Office staff, as well as for various types of deliveries and service teams.
  4. There are no contraindications for disabled persons with a service dog to enter the GUM premises.
