Commissioner for the Digital Economy and Society, Mariya Gabriel, stated:
112 is a life-saving number for all users. The Commission services are engaging actively with relevant Member States authorities in order to address all outstanding issues and to secure swift and concrete solutions that ensure equivalent access to emergency services for everybody. The recently adopted European Communications Code and the political agreement on the European Accessibility Act reinforce our Union's commitment to ensure an inclusive society.
Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility, Marianne Thyssen, added:
With the European Accessibility Act we are breaking down barriers to the participation and inclusion of people with disabilities across the European Union. Soon, people with disabilities will be sure to have equivalent access to the single European emergency number 112 to save lives, regardless of the Member State they're in and on an equal footing with others.
