Burgerservicenummer (BSN) for Partners

Production/Stable License: AGPL-3 OCA/l10n-netherlands Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runboat

This module adds the BSN (Burgerservicenummer) field on partner forms.

The field is visible when the field company_type is set to Individual.

A double check on the BSN is done when inserting/modifying its value:

  • validation of the BSN (check whether the format is correct);
  • check if another partner with the same BSN already exists.

In both cases, a non-blocking alert is shown.

Table of contents


The module depends on the external library python-stdnum.

You can install that library by using pip3:

$ pip3 install python-stdnum


For security reasons the BSN number should be only visible to HR related roles. Otherwise this will be in violation to the security framework of WBP regarding the protection of persons info.

To be able to see the BSN number, give the proper permits to the user:

  • User must belong to the “Employees Officer” group


To use this module, you need to:

  • Open a form of a contact: flag Individual must be checked (flag “Company” must be unchecked)
  • Enter a BSN number

Known issues / Roadmap

  • The ‘ilike’ search of a substring of a BSN number could not work properly in case the entered BSN number does not contain dots while the corresponding BSN number stored in the database contains dots.
