Purpose

To ensure consistency and security in the Drupal-based EU and EC branded websites, only a limited amount of file formats can be uploaded to them.

Rule

Only the following file formats can be uploaded:

  1. HTML and PDF for content
  2. GIF, JP(E)G and PNG for images

Other formats may only be used in exceptional circumstances:

It is the responsibility of the uploader to ensure that the shared files don't contain viruses.

For non Drupal-based sites the site owner is advised to whitelist file types and check each of them for possible security threats.

Accessibility

Your use of permitted file formats must respect accessibility guidelines.
