 What is Compliance Sheriff?

It is an Integrated Digital Accessibility Platform to test, monitor and manage Accessibility compliance and the progress made for websites, mobile apps, and digital products. It is used by designers and developers to meet the WCAG and stay compliant.


Compliance Sheriff is an enterprise automated testing tool developed by Cyxtera used to assist in testing webpages against accessibility standards. Compliance Sheriff is used throughout the CSU and within the CSUN campus, all colleges and divisions have a selected compliance sheriff coordinator responsible for conducting evaluations on their college or division websites.
