    Default preposition after "notification"

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask which preposition should go after "notification" in the following context:

    If the information, discrediting the honor, dignity or business reputation of the citizen or the legal entity, has been spread by the mass media, it shall be refuted free of charge by the same mass media.


    If the said information is contained in the document, issued by an organization, the given document shall be liable to an exchange or recall with obligatory notification to the addressees that the information contained in the document does not correspond to reality.


    Is 'to' the correct preposition to use after notification?

    Yes, you make notification TO the people you tell, and you make notification OF whatever it is you tell them.

    To the people. Have you made notifications to the affected parties? (You can, of course, rewrite that as "Have you notified...?")

    Of the content. I was only just notified that my application has been approved.

    By to tell you what medium. I was notified by phone; being told in person would have been more courteous.
