Compliance and regulations
Naturally, we are constantly aware of the need for compliance. We therefore pursue an active compliance policy based on the relevant laws and regulations. Our compliance officer is responsible for this, and holds the necessary Wft certification. In concrete terms, the compliance officer deals with matters such as integrity issues and change processes, as well as monitoring whether all of the applicable laws and regulations have been/will be implemented, and ensuring that all employees are aware of this.
The business activities of Newomij Financieringen and Newomij Verzekeringen are licenced by the Dutch Autoriteit Financiële Markten (AFM). Among other things, this means that we apply a controlled remuneration policy and ensure that our employees are and remain competent in their work.
All new employees must provide a Certificate of Conduct (Verklaring Omtrent het Gedrag) upon commencement of their employment. We also keep copies of diplomas and certificates in the employee file. All Newomij employees must sign our code of conduct.
The description of our administrative organisation outlines our procedures, authorizations, risks and internal controls. It also details the division of tasks and the required separation between the control/technical functions in decision-making, implementation and registration.
With the introduction of the stricter GDPR legislation in 2018, we commenced a project to record all processes involving the use of personal data in a register of processing in the tool Privacy Control Center. We have also placed a privacy and cookie statement on our website and have established processing agreements with our processors/sub-processors.
If you have any questions about the above, please contact our compliance officer, Pirjo van Rosse.
