The AMF website has been designed and created to be accessible, in accordance with Article 47 of Act 2005-102 of February 2005 on the equal rights and opportunities, participation and citizenship of people with disabilities.

For this reason, the AMF website complies with the recommendations of the Government Accessibility Framework (RGAA) and all the recommendations of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

However, some types of content that existed before the website upgrade may raise accessibility issues. This applies, for example, to documents in portable document format (pdf) posted on various sections of the site. Similarly, the simulation tools in the Épargne Info Service section use JavaScript exclusively and offer no alternative.

If you have problems accessing a page or service, feel free to contact us, specifying your user situation (browser, technical assistance, etc.) using the Contact Us form at the bottom of the page.
