RIVM is committed to providing online information that is
user-friendly, accessible, well-designed and easy to find.
Government websites need to be easy for the public to find, use and
view. To make sure that this happens, RIVM has adopted the
so-called Web Guidelines. The Web Guidelines are based on the
internationally recognized rules concerning website accessibility,
design and sustainability as laid down by the World Wide Web
Consortium (W3C). The Accessibility Foundation has conducted annual
reviews of RIVM’s online information since 2011, and has authorized
RIVM to use the drempelvrij.nl quality mark on its website
