visitpacifica.com is in the process of, or has adopted Section 508 and W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA as the benchmark to further Universal Accessibility. These Section 508 guidelines were published to the federal register on December 21, 2000. The Access Board (the federal board assigned to create Section 508 standards) used the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative guidelines as the benchmark for developing their standards.
