The National decision regarding digital accessibility of websites and mobile applications of public sector bodies states that government websites must comply with accessibility requirements as determined in EN 301 549/WCAG 2.1 and must show their accountability by publishing an accessibility statement.

How do we work to ensure accessibility?
The MEB implements ongoing improvements in accessibility through a variety of measures within the framework of our (day-to-day) processes:
- Accessibility ‘by design’: from the very start, accessibility is integrated into all the steps of the design, construction, and editing process for our website. Within that context, we also focus specifically on user-friendliness and findability.
- Accessibility evaluations: independent experts regularly evaluate (parts of) the website from the perspective of accessibility. We resolve any bottlenecks or obstacles identified in a sustainable manner.
- Employee knowledge base: our employees regularly update their knowledge with regard to accessibility and apply new insights when necessary.
