We aim to make the CIEEM website as accessible as possible.

Design Standards

We aim to design to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. We also work to the BSI PAS 78:2006 guidelines where possible.

Structure of the Site

We have one set of pages for the whole site, which we aim to make accessible to all. We do not separate accessible and less accessible pages into separate sections.

A link to a site map can be found on most pages, which shows the organization of the whole site.


We aim to use clear, plain English in a concise and meaningful way.

Use of Multimedia 

We aim to label all images, and use images just where appropriate (not for purely decorative text and headings).

Text will be scaleable, as will all pages themselves. We set a maximum size for most pages, to ensure lines are wrapped according to commonly accepted typographical rules.

Browser Support

There will always be small differences in the display between browsers, but we do aim to broadly support:

  • Internet Explorer 5+ for Windows
  • Safari for the Macintosh
  • Mozilla Firefox for all platforms
  • Google Chrome for all platforms

Proof of Compliance

Rather than using automated tools and badges, which can be a bit hit-or-miss, we aim to be responsive to your needs. Please notify us of any specific problemes you encounter, or any suggestions you have for improvement.


CIEEM’s language of business is English. However, it is important that CIEEM demonstrates that it respects the use of other languages by its members and stakeholders. Translation services will be provided at CIEEM’s cost where it is necessary for compliance with equal opportunities legislation. Where language translation services are specifically requested (e.g. to enable an individual to apply for membership or Chartership or CIEEM to process a membership or Chartership application or to provide an In Practice article in a language other than English), CIEEM will consider the request and the resources involved to see if it is practicable to meet the request.
