This section contains an overview of Web-related requirements and style guidelines for IEEE employees, volunteers, and partners (vendors, consultants, or contract workers) involved in the development or enhancement of IEEE Web sites.

IEEE Web sites that are not fully IEEE owned (partner sites) are encouraged to meet requirements as appropriate; however, compliance is not mandatory unless otherwise agreed upon.
