What is Access4you Certification?
Building or Design audit

Experts assess the buildings

If a building owner or operator orders our service, an accredited auditor will visit the site to carry out a survey.

If the building is still at the design stage, we will carry out an assessment of the design documentation.

Specific needs examined

Survey for 9 groups

A blind person faces different obstacles than a wheelchair user. This is why we are looking at the specific needs of 9 groups of people:

People in wheelchairs, with pushchairs, the Elderly, visually impaired, the Blind, hard of hearing, the Deaf,  people with cognitive impairment and people with assistance dogs.

Survey for 9 groups
Certification and qualification

Qualification of the buildings

We have created a rating system that qualifies buildings into 4 categories: Certified location, Bronze, Silver or Gold category.

The more accessible the building is to people with different needs, the higher the rating.

The building owner will receive a certificate of the achieved qualification, certifying that the assessment has been carried out by an independent professional.

Qualification of the buildings
Minimum requirements

The data behind the qualification

For each of the 9 assessed groups, we have compiled a list of building features that are essential for accessibility. We call these minimum requirements.

The list of minimum requirements varies from building type to building type. An office building has to fulfil one set of functions and a small cafeteria another.

Certified locations and mobile app

Access, for you.

Every location that we certify is uploaded to our location database and the Access4you mobile app.

You can check the survey details here. Is there barrier-free parking? How many inches wide is the front door? How big is the restroom? Will my assistance dog be allowed in?

Every information at the click of a button!

Access, for you.
