PDF files

The PDF files offered on the website can be accessed using the Adobe Acrobat Reader program: Download Adobe Acrobat Reader.


PDF documents must be stored in an accessible format, a format that can be read by software.


The guideline imposes very high demands on PDF files. Specific knowledge and/or tools are required to create PDFs that meet these requirements. However, many of the PDF documents are provided externally, which sometimes makes it challenging to comply with this guideline.


The municipality of Uithoorn believes that deviation from the norm has been adequately resolved.


As a solution to the problem, the municipality of Uithoorn has chosen to adhere to a set of minimum requirements for PDFs:
The format is PDF/A-1a or PDF/UA-1. The text must be selectable and copyable. The PDF does not contain scanned documents. The PDF does not contain personal data. Exception: externally provided documents.


To limit the number of less accessible documents, the municipality of Uithoorn imposes requirements on new PDFs. The PDFs must meet at least the criteria listed under 'Alternatives.'

Requesting an accessible PDF

You may come across a non-accessible PDF version. You can contact us at and request an accessible version of the document in question. Please include the URL of the page where the PDF is located in your message.
