They have a mapping between AnySurfer and the 
Unified Web Evaluation Methodology (UWEM 1.0) at
<http://www.anysurfer.be/fr/apropos-de-anysurfer/un-site-accessible/lois-et-standards/anysurfer-et-uwem-1.0/> 
(in French; there is also a version in Dutch). 
UWEM 1.x is an evaluation methodology for WCAG 
1.0 developed by a consortium of European organisations.
When BlindSurfer became AnySurfer in 2006, the 
revised guidelines took into account the new 
requirements of WCAG 2.0 but also the features of 
AT that were actually in use in Belgium. See
<http://www.anysurfer.be/fr/service/aide/foire-aux-questions/pourquoi-les-directives-de-blindsurfer-o/> 
(French) or
<http://www.anysurfer.be/nl/service/hulp/veelgestelde-vragen/waarom-zijn-de-blindsurferrichtlijnen-a/> 
(Dutch).

Best regards,

Christophe
