Accessible Bankinter

A Bank for All

Committed to accessibility.

In line with its policy to deliver services that guarantee equal opportunities and the non-discrimination of people, Bankinter has undertaken to ensure that its websites are compliant with Royal Decree 1112/2018 of 7 September on the accessibility of websites and applications for mobile devices in the public sector.

The initiative "A Bank for All" demonstrates its commitment to adapt both its read-only and operable digital content to the international accessibility requirements.

Bankinter therefore provides the people responsible for the design, creation and maintenance of its digital content with guidance and resources to ensure compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, the latest version published by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium).

For Bankinter, accessibility is an intrinsic aspect of the two basic pillars of any digital development: quality and universal design.

The guidelines in BANKINTER's Digital Accessibility Policy are based on the EN 301 549 (2018) standard, which establishes the accessibility requirements for digital content. This statement applies to the following web portals:

See Compliance status Compliance status

These websites are partially compliant with RD 1112/2018 due to exceptions and lack of conformity.

The reasons for non-accessible content are as follows:

  • Some relationships presented in the information can be conveyed through other means (programming or texts) [Requirement 9.1.3.1. Info and Relationships EN 301 549 v2.1.2:2018]
  • The visual presentation of some texts and images have a low constrast ratio [Requirement 9.1.4.3. Contrast (minimum) EN 301 549 v2.1.2:2018]
  • Some pages do not have a title describing their purpose [Requirement 9.2.4.4. Link purpose (in context) EN 301 549 v2.1.2:2018]
  • In some operations the keyboard focus indicator is not visible [Requirement 9.2.4.7. Focus visible EN 301 549 v2.1.2:2018]
  • There may be content or files in PDF or other formats published before 20 September 2018 that are not fully compliant with the accessibility requirements.
  • There may also be editing errors in the web pages and in the final documents, although we are working to improve them.
