Accessibility

Bidbook.eu wants everyone to be able to use this website. Nevertheless, if you land on a page that is not accessible, please tell us about this.

This statement relates to:
• All pages on http://www.bidbook.eu/

What is an accessible website?
An accessible website can be used by all the target groups, without limitations. Therefore there are particular functional and editorial accessibility requirements (formerly: web guidelines) for government websites. These are laid down in accessibility standard EN 301 549.

The accessibility statement will be adjusted if necessary.
This statement was modified on April 16, 2020.

Ensuring accessibility
We ensure good accessibility by implementing a number of measures in our (daily) processes.

  • Accessibility by design: accessibility is part of every step of the design, construction and editorial process of this website from the start.
  • Research: independent experts regularly check (parts of) our website for accessibility. They look at the components related to functionality and also at the editorial aspects. We fix any problems and ensure they do not reoccur.
  • Employee knowledge: our employees keep their knowledge about accessibility up to date and apply this where necessary.

Components that make the site non-compliant
At the present time we do not know whether the website meets these guidelines. In March 2020, an external party started a study to check whether this website meets all the guidelines. The findings are divided into functional-technical and editorial accessibility aspects. The editorial accessibility aspects have been implemented and embedded within the processes. An improvement plan has been drawn up for the technical accessibility requirements. The resulting points for improvement will be further addressed by the developer. Some downloadable PDFs and video's are not fully accessible. PDFs are not always provided with a legend and description of images. An exact end date or planning of the work is not yet known.

Consequences
Some parts of this website may be less usable for people with disabilities.
