Below you can read exactly what an electronic money institution does. And what you can find in the register. Finally, we will explain how you can search the register.
Electronic money institutions
An electronic money institution issues electronic money, for example in the shape of a gift card or a wristband you can use for paying at a festival.
Electronic money institutions wishing to operate in the Netherlands must have a licence or exemption from DNB. Exempt institutions are not supervised by DNB, but by the AFM. The register contains all electronic money institutions operating in the Netherlands.

As a result of the expiry of the transitional period after Brexit, the public DNB Financial Supervision Act (Wft) register for incoming and outgoing notifications from/to the UK has been updated as of 1 January 2021. This means, for instance, that notifications entered in the Wft register for cross-border services to or from the UK, including Gibraltar, via passporting rights or the establishment of a branch, have been removed from the Wft Register. You can find an overview of the notifications that have been deleted here.
We update the register every business day at 06:00.
