Website Standards

The objective of Website Standards is to introduce a level of consistency throughout all Government websites in terms of positioning and functionality of key website elements and to promote the Government identity of the Kingdom, therefore making it easier for users to identify Bahrain government entities’ websites.

Additionally, a potential advantage will be achieved which is to ensure reduced development and website maintenance costs.

Moreover, a variety of web validation tools are available for ministries to assist in developing defect-free and high quality websites.

eServices Standards

eServices Standards are language-specific programming rules that greatly reduce the probability of introducing errors during the service development life cycle.

These standards are originated from the intensive study of industry experts who analyzed how bugs were generated when code was written and correlated these bugs to specific coding practices.

This section includes CSS guidelines, Java standards, User Interface standards, C# .NET coding standards, and Java/J2EE naming conventions.
