What is an accessible website?

An accessible website can be used by all target groups, without limitations. Therefore there are particular functional and editorial accessibility requirements (or previously: web guidelines) for government websites. These are laid down in accessibility standard EN 301 549.

Ensuring accessibility

We ensure good accessibility by implementing a number of measures in our (daily) processes.

  • Accessibility by design: accessibility is part of every step of the design, construction and editorial process of this website right from the start.
  • Knowledge of employees: our employees keep their knowledge about accessibility up to date and apply this where necessary.
