The Ministry of Finance has submitted a proposed bill (in Dutch) intended to immediately implement supervision of clearing companies15. Clearing companies are those which settle and equalise payment transactions and transactions in financial instruments.

The provisions regarding ongoing supervision of clearing companies will be included in the Decree on Prudential Rules FMSA (Besluit prudentieel toezicht financiële groepen) and the Decree on Conduct of Business Supervision of Financial Undertakings FMSA (Besluit gedragstoezicht financiële ondernemingen Wft). It was initially intended to include the provision in a separate part of the FMSA.
