FI reviews and assesses your application during the handling period. This page describes in more detail what this means and what steps are included in the process.
FI's employees review your application and assess whether the conditions to grant the authorisation you have applied for have been met. The basis for this are the rules that apply to the authorisation in question.
Once the application has been received and the fee paid, the administrator conducts an initial overview to check that the application is formally complete.
In order for the handling process to progress as quickly as possible, it is therefore important for the application to be complete when it is submitted to us. If something is missing, this will delay the process since we may need to request supplemental information. If the supplemental information is not submitted before the specified deadline, we may reject the application.
Once the application is complete, we review the documentation and consider whether the conditions for the authorisation are met. FI may also request supplemental information at this stage to reach a decision. If this is necessary, we will contact you.
In most cases, your application will be assessed by one administrator from a legal department and one administrator from a supervision department.
If we request supplemental information and do not receive the information before the specified deadline, FI may make a decision based on the documents that were submitted.
During the handling period, you have contact with your appointed administrator. If supplemental information is required for your application, email the documents directly to your administrator. Remember to include the reference number in all communication with FI.
It is important for your application to be well-prepared. Remember that you, as the applicant, are responsible for describing how the planned activity will meet the requirements for the authorisation. You must also provide arguments for why FI should grant the authorisation.
