Legal framework:

Which accessibility guidelines?

This website endeavours to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people.

This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.

Compliance status

Whilst BIRA-IASB strives to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.

The most recent enhancements concern:

  • the code behind titles and sub-titles
  • the contrast between text and text background

Monitoring body

The Belgian Web Accessibility Office (Federale Overheidsdienst BOSA) supports BIRA-IASB in making digital information accessible. This web accessibility expert provides us with compliance reports that you can request via our contact form.


We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility. In the meantime should you experience any difficulty in accessing the BIRA-IASB website, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Enforcement procedure

You can submit complaints to the Federal Ombudsman.
