ARCNL strives to provide a website that satisfies the Decree on web accessibility for public sector bodies (only available in Dutch). This means that we want our website to be user-friendly and accessible for different target groups.
What constitutes an accessible website?
An accessible website is one that can be better navigated by all target groups. Functional, technical and editorial accessibility requirements therefore apply to websites from public sector bodies. These requirements are stipulated in international guidelines for web accessibility (only available in Dutch). You can read more about these on the government website concerning digital accessibility (only available in Dutch).
Assessment digital accessibility
On 14 June 2022, the Dutch foundation Stichting Accessibility assessed whether the website https://arcnl.nl satisfies the accessibility criteria. This revealed that the website does not yet satisfy the criteria on all points. You can read the outcomes in the research report WCAG 2.1 and management summary WCAG 2.1 (both in Dutch), which can be downloaded here.
Based on the results of the investigation by Stichting Accessibility, ARCNL will endeavour to improve the digital accessibility of its website.
The current state of affairs with respect to the digital accessibility of https://arcnl.nl can be read in the accessibility statement. The image at the foot of this page (in Dutch only) shows the ARCNL website’s current accessibility status and you can use the link in the image to access the accessibility statement (in Dutch only).
