The Conseil des appellations réservées et des termes valorisants website is accessible to all internet users. Accessibility enables persons with disabilities – including persons who are blind or visually impaired, or deaf or hearing-impaired, who have learning difficulties, cognitive impairment, motor impairment, a speech impairment, or photosensitivity, and those with a combination of such functional limitations – to have access to information on the website. Accessibility also counteracts various technical constraints in order to facilitate navigation.
The current version of the Conseil des appellations réservées et des termes valorisants website largely meets the requirements of the Québec government standard on website accessibility.

Some elements of the website may not be wholly compliant with the government standards, despite reasonable efforts by the Conseil des appellations réservées et des termes valorisants to guarantee accessibility of its website to all users. Based on the standards set out in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, this may concern the following in particular:
- If non-text content is pure decoration, is used only for visual formatting, or is not presented to users, then it is implemented in a way that it can be ignored by assistive technology. (WCAG,.1)
- If YouTube or Vimeo are unable to provide subtitles or a choice of language for video or audio content, no text content will be provided. (WCAG, 1.2.2 - 1.2.3 – 1.2.4 - 1.2.5 - 1.2.6 - 1.2.7 - 1.2.8 - 1.2.9).
The Conseil des appellations réservées et des termes valorisants cannot guarantee the accessibility of third-party content not subject to the Québec government standard on website accessibility (SGQRI 008 2.0).
