Some registries removed

Per October 23 of 2017, the registries DSI Mortgage Credit Consultant, Consumer Credit Consultant, Private Non-Life Insurance Consultant, Business Non-Life Insurance Consultant and DSI Wealth Consultant were removed. These registries fell within the Dutch Act on Financial Supervision law (Wft) domain. However, under the new compulsory guidelines of the European Securities & Markets Authority, this domain no longer applies. 

It is no longer possible to apply for any of the mentioned former registries. Financial professionals currently registered in one of the removed registries will be moved to DSI's Basic Integrity Registry.
