Web Guidelines: apply or explain
The Web Guidelines are on the list of mandatory open standards of the Standardisation Forum. All the open standards on this list are governed by the ‘apply or explain’ principle. This means that government agencies must apply the standards on the list (‘apply’), unless there is a compelling reason not to. In that case, they are obliged to account for that decision in a transparent way (‘explain’).
Central Government Online Platform
This website uses a shared infrastructure (central government online platform), which complies with the functional technical requirements of the Web Guidelines. Other parts of the Web Guidelines lay down requirements for the site’s content.
