Just at the end of last year, the Ministry of Finance announced its intention to redesign the current financial supervision laws. The goal is now to have a single financial supervision law as of January 1, 2005. This law ('Wet op het financieel toezicht') will be made up of four parts:
- general framework/definitions
- prudential supervision (mostly of credit-institutions),
- compliance with information disclosure rules (behavioural supervision),
- infrastructure of payments and securities systems.
