Website Standards and Guidelines

With the advent of e-Governance and focus on web enablement of citizen services and to make the delivery channel more effective, a set of website standards and guidelines have been developed to meet the need for coherence in technical, design and navigation across all government websites. The website standards encapsulate all of the facets of Website Life Cycle (WLC) and attempt to map best practices and standards in order to facilitate consistent websites across the ministries. The primary objective of these guidelines is to ensure that Bahrain Government websites, at any level, are citizen centric and visitor friendly.

Compliance to these guidelines will ensure a high degree of consistency and uniformity in the content design, development, coverage and presentation, and further promote excellence in Government Web space of Kingdom of Bahrain.

The guidelines that form the foundation of this document are evolving and will continue to be updated over time. Feedback on this document from all interested and concerned is welcome and shall prove helpful in improving the future versions.
