Accessibility statement

The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium aim to make their website accessible to everyone, including people with disabilities. Therefore, we endeavour to comply as fully as possible with the accessibility standards laid down by the law of 19 July 2018 transposing European directive (EU) 2016/2102 on the accessibility of public authorities’ websites and mobile applications.

This accessibility statement was drawn up on 9 november 2021 . The compliance of this website with the requirements of directive (EU) 2016/2102 was verified on the basis of an Accessibility Check by FPS BOSA.


Level of compliance with the accessibility standard

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are a set of standards for accessibility requirements for people with disabilities. These guidelines can be implemented at three levels: Level A, Level AA and Level AAA. 

We are partially compliant with standards of the WCAG 2.1 as some parts of our website do not fully comply with these guidelines.


Limitations and alternatives

We are doing our utmost to make our entire website and the documents it contains accessible to all. However, some of these documents are not yet fully accessible. More specifically, this concerns information archived in pdf format including various publications and activity reports.

Due to technical limitations of our web tool, some parts of the website may not be fully accessible, like identification of frames and pop-ups, some contrast ratios, …

If, while browsing our website or campaign sites, you encounter other information (pdfs, images, etc.) or web pages that are not accessible to you, please let us know.

We also use the social networks Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube to communicate about our activities. The information provided through these channels is also in parts available on the website.
