Statement on Accessibility

The Federal Public Service Health, Food Chain Safety and Environment is committed to making this website accessible, in accordance with the law of 19 July 2018 on the accessibility of websites and mobile applications of public sector organisations(link is external) .

This statement on accessibility applies to the website : https://biocide.be/


This website is in partial compliance to the standards described  in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 niveau AA. Not all requirements are met. 

A simplified, external audit of the accessibility was performed on March 20, 2024. The report is available via this link :  https://scan.accessibility.belgium.be/fr/report/2024/biocide.be. The report is available in French, Dutch or German, not in English.


The content referred to below is not accessible because of issues with lay-out, navigation, images and page design, for example :

  • the lack of textual alternative for some images (missing or non-empty alt tags);
  • the description of some links used as anchors;
  • the html structure of titles needs to be improved for some pages (in particular the coherence in the hierarchy of h tags for titles and inter-titles);
  • the semantic tagging to mark underlined or special texts;
  • the ability to navigate to or bypass content blocks.

Some (old) multimedia or office files do not meet accessibility standards but will be replaced gradually in the course of future updates.


If you need information that is not currently accessible on our website, please contact us via e-mail info.biocides@health.fgov.be. We will try, if possible, to provide you with the information in an accessible way. However, for non-accessible elements, an alternative is not always available.
