3. Measures to promote accessibility

3.1 The control process

Renow websites are built within a standardised development and project management framework following the Renow checklist.

To ensure neutrality, we regularly use external accessibility experts to verify compliance.

Every site undergoes several evaluation steps:

  • during the development of the content structure,
  • during the production of graphical and functional templates
  • and, finally, just before going online.

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

  • The editorial staff checks the accessibility of all new content before it is published.
  • Each new feature on the site is checked before it is published.

During the evaluations, the site is tested with the most widely used screen readers, as well as on tablets and mobiles. It is also tested with different web browsers (compatibility up to 2 versions).

3.2 Competences of involved parties

  • The work procedures include the application of Internet guidelines during the various stages of the site's development (writing, management, development).
  • Companies performing assignments for our organisation are required to apply the Internet guidelines.
  • Our employees have the knowledge and skills required to correctly apply the Internet guidelines.

4. What to do in case of accessibility problems on this site

If you notice an accessibility problem please send an email to, describing your problem and indicating the page concerned.

We (the website managers) commit to replying to you by email within 1 month at the latest. To remedy the problem in a sustainable and reasonable way, the accessibility issue will preferably be directly corrected online. Should this not be possible, the information you requested can be made available to you in an accessible format of your choice: as a document, orally, by phone, email or during an interview.
