The Dutch government is committed to providing online information that is user friendly, accessible, well designed and findable. The websites of public authorities need to be easy for the public to find, view and use.

What is an accessible website?

An accessible website can be used more easily by all target groups. Therefore, the Dutch Temporary decree on the government’s digital accessibility demands that government websites comply with accessibility requirements as put down in EN 301 549/WCAG 2.1, and account for this in a published accessibility statement (toegankelijkheidsverklaring).
