These crypto service providers must submit both practical and substantive information. For example, they will need to provide data evidencing compliance with the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist Financing Act (Wet ter voorkoming van witwassen en financiering van terrorisme - Wwft) and the Sanctions Act (Sanctiewet 1977 - Sw). They also need evidence of a positive fit and proper assessment as a precondition for registration.
The exact list of information to be submitted will be laid down in a Ministerial Regulation. This will be issued when the Act enters into force. While the requirements are still subject to change, we believe it is important to provide information at an early stage and to support service providers who consider applying for registration as a crypto service provider.
The draft forms for registration applications for crypto service providers are now available. We have compiled a draft document with explanatory notes
, to help crypto service providers collect the required information and prepare their application.
Please note: the forms and the notes are based on what is currently known about the new regulations. The legislative process is not yet completed, which means the regulations as well as the requirements for registration are still subject to change.
Once you have completed the registration application form and have collected all required documents, you can submit them to us. Please note that we cannot formally process your application until the Implementation Act has entered into force. However, we will take your application into consideration and inform you about the next steps as soon as possible.
Submitting your application
You can submit your (draft) application through the Digital Supervision Portal (DLT). You will need eHerkenning to be able to access the portal. We therefore advise you to request eHerkenning in time.
Be sure to complete the (draft) application form fully and truthfully and ensure you enclose all the required documents. The application form for fit and proper assessments will be made available in the DLT in the near future.
Notes to the application form
The draft explanatory notes to the application form provide more details and describe what we expect you to do, so please refer to them when completing the form. (Tip!)
The quality of your application
We can assess your application only if you submit a fully and correctly completed (draft) application form and enclose all the required documents. If it does not meet the conditions, we will have to ask you to supplement your application.
The formal consideration period will not start until the Implementation Act has entered into force and your application is complete. This means that the time we need to consider your application greatly depends on the quality of your application and the attached documents. See also: Registration – duration.
