What is an accessible website?

An accessible website is easier to use for all target groups. That is why functional-technical and editorial accessibility requirements (formerly known as: web guidelines) apply to government websites. These are laid down in the accessibility standard Digi Accessible EN 301 549.

Guaranteeing accessibility

We guarantee good accessibility through various measures within our (daily) processes:

  • Accessibility 'by design': accessibility is part of all steps in the design, construction and editorial process of this website from the start.
  • Research: independent experts regularly check (parts of) our website for accessibility. Both for the functional-technical parts and the editorial aspects. We solve problems that have been found in a sustainable way.
  • Knowledge of employees: our employees keep their knowledge about accessibility up to date and apply it where necessary.

Platform Rijksoverheid Online

This website uses a common infrastructure (Platform Rijksoverheid Online) which meets the functional-technical requirements of the Web Guidelines. In addition, there are requirements within the Web Guidelines that concern the editorial aspects of the website.
