The Ministry of Finance has held a consultation on the implementation of the Payment Services Directive4. This directive is intended to harmonise the conditions under which payment services are offered in Europe. A proposed bill implementing this directive was submitted earlier this year to the Second Chamber of Parliament5.

The current consultation relates to a draft decree (in Dutch) elaborating on the proposed bill. It amends the Decree on Market Access of Financial Firms FMSA (Besluit markttoegang financiële ondernemingen Wft (Bmfo)), the Decree on Prudential Rules FMSA (Besluit prudentiële regels Wft), the Decree on Market Access of Financial Firms (Besluit prudentiële toezicht financiële groepen) and the Decree on Conduct of Business Supervision of Financial Undertakings FMSA (Besluit gedragstoezicht financiële ondernemingen Wft).
