Declaration of accessibility

The body making the statement "Information and Press Service" is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the law of 28 May on the accessibility of websites and mobile applications of public sector bodies. This accessibility statement applies to:

What is digital accessibility?

Everyone should be able to easily use and consult the information on a website or an app, in particular people with disabilities and/or using assistive software or specialised equipment (blind, partially sighted or otherwise disabled people).

Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the European Standard EN 301 549 and the RGAA version 4.1, which it implements, due to the reasons listed below.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:


  • The 2023 and 2019 parliamentary elections contain some particular shortcomings: 
    • some row table headers are not identified,
    • some table columns contain only a graphic but are not identifiable
  • Office documents are not accessible: 
    • weak colour contrasts;
    • incorrect document language;
    • unrestored list items;
    • alternatives to the notified decorative images;
    •  …
  • Some navigation tags are missing, notably in the breadcrumb trail, on the news page in the filters and paginations.
  • Some links are not relevant.
  • In the news page, the filters are not titled.
  • Subtitles are rendered in presentation tags. However, this should not block access to the information.
  • The tables do not have a summary.
  • Some errors in the validity of HTML code can disrupt assistive technologies.

Disproportionate burden

  • Some interface components have shortcomings for handling by assistive technologies:
  • In the municipality pages, a hidden table is embedded in each row of the table. It gives access to the names of the candidates and their respective results. This table has accessibility shortcomings, however, these results are also available on the pages of each party.
  • There are shortcomings in some of the interactive maps, however, the links in the interactive maps are listed under the heading "municipalities" or " electoral districts" for each election.
  • The results are often presented in table form, the title is just above the table but is not programmatically associated with the table.

Content not within the scope of the law of 28 May 2019

  • All interactive maps are exempted, provided that all essential information is made available in an accessible digital form. We will make every effort to keep them identifiable and to ensure that they do not cause any problems. The links in the interactive maps are listed under the heading "municipalities" for each election, these pages contain the status of each result and the results for each party.
  • The pages concerning the elections between 2018 and 2013 have additional shortcomings, while the results for each party and for each municipality are available verbatim. These contents are considered to be archives.
  • Some table headers are not identified.
  • The pages concerning the elections before 2013 are not accessible, they are presented as images without alternative. These contents are considered as archives.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared on April 27th 2023. The statements contained in this declaration are accurate and based on an effective conformity assessment of this website with the requirements defined in RGAA 4.1, such as an assessment conducted by a third-party: Idéance.

Control procedure

Renow sites are developed within a generic and centralised framework and architecture, following the project management processes, while respecting the Renow checklist. To ensure neutrality, we regularly rely on accessibility experts to check the compliance of sites or new features.

Each site is evaluated at several stages:

  1. During the design of the content structure.
  2. During the creation of graphic and functional models.
  3. Immediately prior to going live.

Once the site is online, checks are carried out as follows:

  • with each new piece of content, the editors check access to the entire content before it is published;
  • each new functionality of the site is evaluated before it is published.

During the evaluations, the site is tested with the main screen readers, on tablets, mobiles and PCs. They are also tested with different web browsers (compatibility up to 2 versions lower than the current version).

Contributor competencies

The work procedures include the application of internet guidelines at the various stages of the site's development (writing, management, development).

Our employees have the knowledge and skills required to correctly apply the Internet guidelines.
