This page states our intention to provide a website that is usable and accessible to all and details some of the measures taken.
This website's objective on accessibility is to conform to the Guidelines for UK Government Websites (link opens in a new window), which support the W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (link opens in a new window) at Level AA.
These are to ensure that we achieve and maintain an appropriate web accessibility standard and that our web sites are inclusive.
This accessibility statement applies only to the Large Hadron Collider website and does not apply to any other site, including:
- Other websites operated for STFC by partner organisations
- Other government departments, research councils and agencies
- Any site that is linked from one of our pages
We are making every effort to make the LHC website accessible (including layout) and easy to use for everyone, no matter what browser you choose to use, and whether or not you have any disabilities.
STFC use a subset of the UK Government Access Keys standard.
