Forum Standaardisatie

We all want to exchange digital data with each other safely and easily. The Standardisation Forum helps to make this possible by testing open standards and prescribing them to public organisations. These standards improve cooperation between businesses, citizens and the government. 

Forum Standaardisatie is one of the first participants of Mastodon Overheid. Mastodon Overheid is the Mastodon pilot environment for a decentralised social media community platform specifically for the Dutch Government. Here, government organisations can discover and use Mastodon, mainly for press and public relations activities.
