When does an application need to be made for authorisation?
Your firm is planning to offer new investment services that are not currently covered by its licence.
In this case, you must contact the ACPR to apply to extend the licence granted to your institution before starting these new activities, following the procedure and using the form for the licensing procedure (cf. above). Authorisation will be issued within 4 months following the transmission of a completed file.
- contact the Secretariat of the Authorisation, Licensing and Regulation Division to organise a meeting to present your plans and proposed timetable;
- mail in a detailed request for prior authorisation for an extension of activity accompanied by a licensing application (cf. above), making sure to complete all the relevant sections. In the letter, please specify in particular:
- the strategy followed,
- the timetable for completing the project,
- the expected impact of the change in the activity of your institution, by filling out the sections of the form corresponding to your request (notably the proposed programme of operations, forward-looking management information and the supervisory arrangements that you plan to set up).
