The Federal Public Service Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation undertakes to make this site accessible in accordance with the following legislation: Law of 19 July 2018 on the accessibility of websites and mobile applications of public organisations. 

This accessibility statement applies to the website 


Our website partly meets the accessibility requirements as described in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 level AA. Not all the requirements were met. 

An external accessibility audit has been carried out. This audit was a simplified analysis. 



  • Images that are links do not always describe the function of the link (WCAG criterion 1.1.1) 

  • Appropriate section headings are not always identified (WCAG criterion 1.3.1) 

  • Semantic markers are not always used to highlight highlighted or special text (WCAG criterion 1.3.1) 

  • There is not enough sufficient contrast between text and background on some pages (WCAG criterion 1.4.3) 




Currently, there is not always an available alternative for other non-accessible elements. 




If you have any questions or comments about the accessibility of our website, you can contact us via the contact form. 

Are you not satisfied with the answer you got? Then please contact the federal Ombudsman: 

Federal Ombudsman

Website: Federale Ombudsman 




For the insufficient contrast between text and background on some pages, and for the images that are links that do not always describe the function of the link, BOSA will be called upon to solve this problem. The other detected problems resulting from errors in content management will be systematically resolved by the editorial team.
