What exactly does the licence application procedure at the AFM entail?

You can apply for a licence via our AFM Portal. The AFM’s response time will be 8, 13 or 26 weeks, depending on the type of organisation and licence involved. The AFM may suspend the application procedure if the application is incomplete, meaning that the processing time of an application may take significantly longer in practice than the statutory term. The quality of the application and the response time of the applicant to questions from the AFM will also significantly affect the processing time. Our website provides more information on the various licences and licence applications for each type of organisation.
