• The AFM has published a communication on its working method, outlining the manner in which the AFM communicates with the world about its supervision practice. The AFM has published a procedure for viewing and copying digital data. The procedure took effect on 24 February 2011. It sets out how AFM supervisors will carry out their powers to inspect and copy business data and documents. The procedure also governs the gathering of (digital) information in situations other than an on-site investigation.
  • The AFM has published a policy guideline on transferability, in which it explains when an instrument or participation right can be traded. The AFM has chosen a wide, economic approach to the term "transferability". The interpretation of this term is relevant in determining if an instrument or participation right is a "security" within the meaning of the FMSA, in which case the prospectus requires AFM approval.  
  • The AFM has revised its procedure for viewing and copying digital data. The revised procedure took effect on 24 February 2011 and replaced the 2006 procedure, which no longer met current practice. The revised procedure sets out how AFM supervisors will carry out their powers to inspect and copy business data and documents. The procedure also governs the gathering of (digital) information in situations other than an on-site investigation. The company which is being investigated must cooperate with such information-gathering process  
  • The AFM has published its 2010 annual report.
