Web accessibility statement for www.smartcity.brussels
The BRIC wishes to promote the use of the internet by making it more accessible, particularly for people with disabilities. We are therefore constantly improving the user experience and are applying the relevant accessibility standards accordingly.
Measures to improve accessibilityWe have implemented the following measures to enhance the accessibility of our website:
- the promotion of the use of the internet in a sustainable manner is included in our organisation’s mission statement;
- accessibility is an essential component of our sustainability strategy. It is an intrinsic part of our policy;
- accessibility is included in our communication strategy;
- our employees have received training in accessibility standards.
Level of compliance with the accessibility standardThe Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) are a series of guidelines for improving web accessibility for people with disabilities. There are three levels at which these rules can be implemented: Level A, Level AA and Level AAA.
The BRIC website is partially compliant as some areas of our site do not fully comply with these rules. They concern information in PDF format (e.g. publications such as annual reports).
