This statement was prepared on 6 December 2021. The statements contained in this declaration are accurate and based on an effective conformity assessment of this website with the requirements defined in RGAA 4.1 , such as an assessment conducted by a third-party: Idéance.
Websites created under the Renow standardisation reference system are developed within a generic and centralised framework and architecture in accordance with project management processes and the Renow checklist. To guarantee neutrality, we regularly call on accessibility experts to check the compliance of sites or new features.
Each site is evaluated at several stages:
- During the design of the content structure;
- During the creation of graphic and functional models;
- Immediately prior to going live.
Once the site is online, checks are carried out as follows:
- the editors check access to all new content before it is published;
- each new functionality of the site is evaluated before it is published.
During evaluations, the site is tested with the most common screen readers, tablets, mobile phones and PCs. They are also tested with different web browsers (compatibility up to 2 versions below the current version).
The work procedures include the application of internet guidelines at the various stages of the site's development (writing, management, development).
Our employees have the knowledge and skills required to correctly apply the Internet guidelines.
