Pursuant to Section 23c(2) of the legislative proposal, the deadline for processing applications submitted by new service providers after the entry into force of the Act is two months. Note that these new service providers are not permitted to offer the proposed services during the processing period. If any information is missing, the period within which we are required to decide on the application will be suspended until the date on which the application is supplemented or until the term for its supplementation elapses unused, in accordance with Section 4:15 of the General Administrative Law Act (Algemene wet bestuursrecht – Awb).
Another prerequisite for registration is that all policymakers and co-policymakers must first be approved following fit and proper assessments, even if this means that the deadline needs to be suspended. Please note that fit and proper assessments have their own specific deadlines.
