GOV.WALES products must meet standards related to design, security, domains and content.
GOV.WALES products must follow the Global Experience Language (GEL) design system and get design approval.
Detailed guidance on aspects of the GEL include:
The content in GOV.WALES products must be written to work well online. Find out more in introduction to writing for GOV.WALES.
Accessibility and assisted digital
Your product needs to be accessible to everyone who needs it or you may be breaking the law. Follow the accessibility standards for GOV.WALES.
The Welsh language must not be treated less favourably than English. Follow the advice in Welsh language in digital communications.
A range of skills are required to produce a good product. Find out how to set up a team for a GOV.WALES service.

Projects involving Information and Communication Technology (ICT) spending over £2,000 require approval.
