Accessibility of the site

Last update – 17/10/2022 

Internet accessibility means ensuring that people with a wide range of abilities can easily access the information and functions available on the internet.

As a public sector organisation, Enabel is to ensure equal access to information for all users, able and disabled, regardless of the device or software they use and the environment in which they work, so that they are able to use the information, services and tools we provide.

We are committed to making our website accessible and are actively working to improve the experience for all users by enhancing accessibility and user-friendliness. This means ensuring that our products and content meet current standards, including those referred to in the EU’s Website Accessibility Directive (Official Journal of the European Union), which came into force in December 2016.

The Directive requires public sector organisations to apply the European standard EN 301 549 to their websites and online tools. This standard is based on the latest version of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, which is AA compliant.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines have been developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as part of the Web Accessibility Initiative. They are intended for all providers, editors, creators and designers of web content.

Accessible content should respect the four principles of web accessibility:

Perceptibility – content should be provided in such a way that the user, with at least one of his or her senses, is able to access it. For example, images are described using alternative text for users with visual impairments.

Usability – content can be controlled by means of various tools. For example, people who are unable to use a mouse can access content using only the keyboard.

Understandability – clear and simple language and predictable and consistent interfaces should be used. This is useful for people with cognitive or reading disabilities.

Robustness – the website should work properly with various browsers, devices and platforms, including assistive technologies.

Compliance status

This website is optimised to apply the European standard EN 301 549 and partially complies with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 level AA.
