It's certainly not a WCAG requirement. I don't know about Section 508 though.

Subject: [WebAIM] error reporting feature: a requirement?

Hi all,

I seem to recall reading that it's a requirement to have a feature for users to report an error. We have one already built into our course system, but a partner is asking to remove it in favor of the one in their system. We can simply turn it off on a course-by-course basis, but I'd rather keep it on in our system, as that's much easier for students. I was looking for support from the WCAG and Section 508 docs, but I can't find it. Does anyone know whether an error reporting feature is required? Am I imagining things?
