The Dutch Central Bank (DNB) has published a brochure in which it sets out certain topics that will get specific supervisory attention during 2009.

The DNB will closely review liquidity positions, quality of loans and will execute stress tests more often. The DNB will also investigate, with other international regulators, whether Basel II needs to be amended. The DNB will continue with the implementation of Solvency II into Dutch law and will review how insurers are preparing for it. Another topic the DNB will take into account is the integrity aspects of banks and insurers, such as compliance with anti-money laundering rules and computer crime.
