1.1.1. Provide breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs must be present on each page:

  • They must show the current position of the user in the website’s hierarchical structure in relation to the home page.
  • They must allow the user to navigate up the hierarchy of parent pages to the home page.
  • They must always be positioned in the same place on every page of the website.

Breadcrumbs are not mandatory on the home page.

It is considered good practice to visually distinguish the last item of breadcrumbs if this is the current position.


Example breadcrumbs.
