The AnySurfer checklist contains all requirements from WCAG2.0 level A.
We tried to structure them comprehensively. Applying WCAG2.0 always involves 
interpretation. We tried to incorporate all level A requirements and to not 
go beyond them, but it remains an interpretation.

AnySurfer is a project run by a non-profit organisation. In many contracts 
AnySurfer compliance is stipulated but there is no legislation put in place. 
The AnySurfer checklist is a de facto standard in Belgium, but it is not 
officially "adopted" by the government.

Kind regards
