Equal Opportunities Commission



The Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) is committed to promoting equal opportunities and eliminating discrimination. We believe equal access to different premises is essential for everyone to fully participate in society.

As such, the Universal Design Award Scheme 2024/25 (UDAS) is introduced with the aims to promote the values of equal opportunities, diversity  and inclusion in order to create an environment that is accessible and usable by everyone, regardless of age, ability and status in life. The application of universal design principles in our built environment allows users with diverse needs to access different premises and enjoy the goods, services and facilities independently.

UDAS recognises companies and organisations with outstanding performances and contributions in providing an accessible built environment and encourages the wider adoption of universal design for people with all abilities, including but not limited to persons with disabilities, elderly, carers, pregnant women, and families with children.
