As an operator of a regulated market, you must inform the Minister of Finance that you intend to offer your services in the Netherlands. The details of this process are given in Section 19 of the Wft Implementing Regulations. In addition, you must make suitable arrangements to make your market more accessible and tradable for members or participants located in the Netherlands.
The Minister may, on request, grant full or partial exemption from the licensing requirement if you can demonstrate that you can meet the statutory requirements. This option is in principle available to operators of a market outside the EEA. Application for exemption has no prescribed form. The AFM is responsible for assessing the application, and advises the Minister regarding the decision to be taken.
