Accessibility statement

The Belgian Foreign Trade Agency is committed to making this website accessible, in accordance with the law of 19 July 2018 transposing European Directive (EU) 2016/2102 on the accessibility of websites and mobile applications of public authorities.

This accessibility statement applies to the website:


Compliance status

This website is partially compliant, due to the non-conformities and exemptions listed below.

An external simplified accessibility audit has been performed. Consult the Dutch version of the audit report, consult the French version of the audit report


Non-accessible content

Some pages contain some accessibility shortcomings. The following points should be reviewed:

  • provide a link title that describes the function of the link for an anchor element
  • using the alt attribute on the img element
  • use h1-h6 to identify section headings
  • use semantic markers to highlight emphasised or special text
  • ensure a contrast ratio of at least 4.5:1 between the text (and text in image form) and the text background.

Suggested alternatives

The current website of the Belgian Foreign Trade Agency will soon be replaced by a completely new website that will meet the proposed accessibility criteria.
