Before starting activities, you must:
- contact the Authorisation, Licensing and Regulation Division to present your plans and proposed timetable;
- prepare an application for the desired licence, including all supporting documentation:
The complete application must be submitted in two paper copies and one electronic copy on a USB key to the ACPR General Secretariat.
After receiving your application, the Authorisation, Licensing and Regulation Division (DAAR) will review your request. The ACPR will issue the electronic money institution licence within three months of receipt of a complete application.
As part of the review of the application and in accordance with the regulations, the licence is issued after obtaining the opinion of Banque de France on the security of the means of payment. If the application is incomplete, additional information may be requested and the review period extended.
