DNB enables submission of draft licence applications under PSD2

Date 20 June 2018
As of 6 July 2018, interested parties may submit draft licence applications to De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) for providing payment services under the revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2). We will start assessing such applications from that date.

This will enable us to grant definitive PSD2 licences soonafter the relevant law has come into effect. This date partly depends on the parliamentary consideration of the amended legislative proposal for PSD2 of 19 June.

The draft application allows the applicant and DNB to commence the assessment process, so that the consideration time for an application after PSD2 has been laid down in Dutch law will be shorter.
