Accessibility Information Scheme ‘Toegankelijk Vlaanderen’, Belgium

11/09/2007 | 0 comments

Logo of Toegankelijk Vlaanderen

The database, 'Toegankelijk Vlaanderen' (Accessible Flanders) contains information regarding the accessibility of buildings, premises and tourist facilities such as town and city halls, schools, hotels, museums, socio-cultural centres, sports centres, cycle paths, footpaths and other tourist facilities in the region of Flanders, Belgium.

The information within the database is achieved by on-site measurements conducted by specially trained personnel of the different accessibility bureaus in Flanders.

Information is available in the following languages: Dutch, French, German and English.

By means of the ‘search’ function, one can quickly retrieve information related to the user's own limitations and needs; one can consult the specific facilities for motor disabled, visually disabled, hearing impaired or people suffering from respiratory troubles and allergies.

The database adresses both providers and users and provides information on all specific target groups of persons with disabilities.

The database provides more than just a global judgement about accessibility but mentions, for example, the actual dimensions for the different parts of a building or venue (entrance, the lift, the toilets, …). Therefore the user can decide whether it is accessible for him/her or not.

Providers can have their ‘accommodation’ checked and published within the database.
