The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is committed to providing online information that is user friendly, accessible, well designed and findable. The websites of public authorities need to be easy for the public to find, view and use. To make sure that this happens, the National Cyber Security Centre has adopted the Web Guidelines, which its website managers have to apply.

What is an accessible website?

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

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 right 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.
  • Knowledge of employees: our employees keep their knowledge about accessibility up to date and apply this where necessary.
