An EGI must have an authorisation to provide her activities based upon Article 2 Section (10b) of the Act on the financial supervision (Wft) unless the EGI has an exemption. The exempted EGI’s are also in this register. The exempted EGI’s are not supervised by the DNB.
In this register are also (foreign) EGI’s which issue electronic money based upon the European Passport. These EGI’s are supervised by the home supervisor. Electronic money institutions from other countries of the European Economic Area (EEA) could issue electronic money services based upon the European Passport through an Agent in the Netherlands. DNB registers these agents of foreign electronics money institutions without obligation to register. The registration of these agents are an extra service to the public. However the possibility may exist that the registration of incoming agents differs from the registration of the home supervisor.
