On 25 January 2017, the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (Autoriteit Financiële Markten, the AFM) published two new licence application forms. The new forms are published in respect of the licence application requirements pursuant to MiFID II.

The first form is the licence application form that can be used by investment firms which require a licence pursuant to MiFID II. These investment firms include, but are not limited to, brokers and investment firms dealing on own account. The second licence application form can be used by Data Reporting Services Providers (DRSP). DRSPs are a new type of services that are subject to authorisation and supervision pursuant to MiFID II.
