  • Provide information on the status of a content element.

  • Include labels and element descriptions.
  • Guidance on stock.
  • Provide semantic information.

Partial statement of conformity

Content from the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism included on Entrepreneurs (Companies) pages are served by external sources which cannot be controlled and we do not guarantee that they will be accessible. Moreover, the self-employed workers' contributions calculator is an element on the website which we are currently working on to make accessible.

Part of the documentation in PDF format provided on the portal, given that it sometimes comes from external sources, does not meet the required principles of accessibility. FREMAP commits to offering its pdf documents in accessible format. Request these via our information and suggestions form.

To provide support to users with older browser versions, FREMAP has designed a specific style sheet to guarantee the cover of its contents. This style sheet does not fulfil the CSS3 standards but we will provide temporary support to these users.
