Register Account information service providers

Under the Financial Supervision Act (Wet op het financieel toezicht), a payment service provider wishing to operate in the Netherlands must obtain a licence from DNB, unless it has been exempted from the licensing requirement or provides payment services on the basis of the so-termed single European licence Licensed payment service providers are known as payment institutions and are subject to supervision by DNB. The eight different payment services in respect of which a payment service provider may obtain a licence are listed in the Annex to the European Payment Services Directive (2015/2366/EC). Payment institutions who offer account information services (service 8) are registered separately.
In this register are also (foreign) Account information service providers based upon the European Passport. These Account information service providers are supervised by the home supervisor. Account information service providers from other countries of the European Economic Area (EEA) could issue Account information services based upon the European Passport through an Agent in the Netherlands. DNB registers these agents of foreign Account information service providers 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.


The United Kingdom (UK) left the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020. The withdrawal agreement between the EU and the UK provides for a post-Brexit transition period, which will end on 31 December 2020. During this transition period, EU law continues to apply to and in the UK (Article 127). References to Member States will include the UK (Article 7), with a few exceptions, none of which are relevant to financial services. Consequently, entries in the Financial Supervision Act (Wft) register for cross-border services from or to the UK, including Gibraltar, via passporting rights for providing financial services, or for branch offices established in the UK and vice versa, remain valid for the duration of the transition period.
