Prohibition on operating as an insurer without authorisation

Factsheet

Published: 27 June 2017

If you do not hold authorisation from DNB, you are not permitted to operate as an insurer unless you qualify for exemption.

We pursue a policy of active enforcement and perform checks at regular intervals. If we find that you are providing insurance services without authorisation or exemption, we have several enforcement measures that we can impose, including issuing cease and desist orders and imposing administrative fines.

Economic offence

Non-compliance with the Financial Supervision Act (Wet op het financieel toezicht – Wft) constitutes a criminal offence under the Economic Offences Act (Wet op de economische delicten), which we can report to the public prosecutor's office.
