Ask us a question

As a licensed financial organization you will regularly have to deal with the national supervisors the AFM and/or DNB. In the field of privacy legislation you may have to deal with the AP. These regulators will monitor your organization’s compliance with the applicable laws and regulations. In order to maintain your good reputation, it is important to properly maintain your relationship with these regulators.

The law stipulates that regulators (such as the AFM, DNB and AP) must gather the necessary knowledge about the relevant facts and the interests to be weighed when preparing their (enforcement) decisions. This is called the principle of duty of care. Naturally, you have every interest in ensuring that such an enforcement decision is carefully prepared. We can support you in this.
