Prohibition on operating as an electronic money institution without authorisation


If you do not hold an authorisation issued by DNB, you are not permitted to operate as a electronic money institution pursuant to Section 2:10a of the Financial Supervision Act, unless you qualify for the Exemption Regulation.

Published: 16 May 2013

DNB pursues a policy of active enforcement and perform checks at regular intervals. If you provide electronic money services without authorisation or exemption issued by DNB and you have not been excepted from the authorisation requirement, we can take several enforcement measures, including issuing cease and desist orders and imposing administrative fines.

Economic offence
Non-compliance with the Financial Supervision Act constitutes a criminal offence under the Economic Offences Act, which we may report to the public prosecutor's office.
