Accessibility Statement

Accessibility Statement

The body making the statement "Banque centrale du Luxembourg" is committed to making its websites accessible, in accordance with the law of 28 May 2019 on the accessibility of websites and mobile applications of public sector bodies. This accessibility statement applies to:

What is digital accessibility?

Everyone should be able to easily use and consult the information on a website or an app, in particular people with disabilities and/or using assistive software or specialised equipment (blind, partially sighted or otherwise disabled people).

Compliance status

These websites are not yet compliant with the European Standard EN 301 549 and the General Framework for Improving Web-Accessibility (RGAA) version 4.1 . The reasons for this non-compliance are listed below. The BCL has launched a project to redesign its website, for which digital accessibility will be one of the priorities.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reason(s):


In the current version:
  • Published PDF documents are not always structured to be cleanly readable with assistive technologies.
  • Images and decorative images on the site are not properly formatted (descriptions, text alternatives...) to be correctly identified by assistive technologies.
  • Many frames on the pages do not have a "title" attribute.
  • Several colors have an insufficient contrast ratio.
  • The destination of some links is not properly represented.
  • The structuring of information is not always consistent. A proper hierarchy of titles on a page is sometimes lacking. On some pages, empty paragraphs are used to create spacing instead of using a style sheet.

Disproportionate burden

The PDF documents published on the site do not comply with the applicable European standard. However, we will attempt to make the most recently published documents compliant and to take these requirements into account in the future.

Content not within the scope of the law of 28 May 2019

Documents from third party sources that are not under the responsibility of the BCL.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared on 3 February 2023. The declarations contained in this statement are accurate and based on an actual evaluation of these websites compliance with the requirements defined in RGAA 4.1 , such as a self-assessment done by "Banque centrale du Luxembourg".

Feedback and contact information

  • in writing in a document or email;
  • orally in an interview or by phone.

Enforcement procedure

Should the reply be unsatisfactory, you also have the possibility of informing the Information and Press Service, the body responsible for supervising accessibility, via its online complaint form or the Ombudsperson, the mediator of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
