On 5 July 2016, the Dutch Minister of Finance sent a letter to the Dutch Parliament including an interim report from the external evaluation commission which is in the process of evaluating the current structure of the integrity and suitability screening processes conducted by the Dutch Central Bank (De Nederlandsche Bank, DNB) and the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (Autoriteit Financiële Markten, the AFM).

The interim report explains the goal of the evaluation – in short, to determine whether the current integrity and suitability screening processes are effective and adequate – the proposed research approach and the timeline of the evaluation. A final version of the evaluation report is expected to be available by 1 December 2016.
