Accessibility Statement Vitalaire Austria

Clarification on the accessibility statement

Air Liquide is present in many countries and has several subsidiaries. To standardize development, testing and deployment, Air Liquide generates its websites from a website factory.

To evaluate the accessibility of these websites, Ipedis has carried out an audit on the following website: Vitalaire France. The result of this audit is visible on the accessibility page of the website.

To make its websites more accessible, Air Liquide has begun a process of assessing the accessibility of all its websites in foreign countries. In this context, Ipedis carried out an audit on the Vitalaire Austria website. The Vitalaire Austria website site includes the elements audited on the initial site Vitalaire France.
