Financial Supervision Act
Supervision of insurers and market access in the Netherlands is governed by the Financial Supervision Act (Wet op het financieel toezicht – Wft). The Wft stipulates that insurers must have authorisation to operate. The authorisation requirement and the supervision of insurers are based on the European Solvency II Directive (2009/138/EC). DNB is responsible for issuing authorisation and exercising prudential supervision of insurers. The Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) is responsible for supervision of market conduct in the Netherlands.
