Open Notificaties is a modern, open-source messaging service that implements the VNG API standard for the “Notificaties API” in line with the Common Ground model. Among others, it can be used in combination with Open Zaak which implements the VNG standards for “API’s voor Zaakgericht werken” that require a Notificaties API.

Open Notificaties exposes a Notificaties API (notifications) to route privacy-safe messages from publishers to subscribers.

Open Notificaties is based on the API reference implementations by VNG Realisatie to create a production-grade product that can be used by municipalities.
