At the end of 2009 amendments were introduced to the (revised) Banking Directive and the (revised) Capital Requirements Directives. The changes concern banks affiliated with central institutions, certain own funds items, securitisations, large exposures, supervisory arrangements, and crisis management.

The implementation of these new rules impacts on a number of Dutch regulations, including the Financial Markets Supervision Act (FMSA). The Ministry of Finance is holding a consultation about the latter changes until 24 September 2010. The Dutch Central Bank (DNB) has meanwhile published draft changes to various supervisory rules and policies arising in connection with the implementation process.

The amendments to the Directives have to be implemented by 31 October 2010.
