Permission for insurance intermediaries exemption Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Product insurance intermediaries and product-inaccsussorary insurance intermediaries may, upon request, be exempted from the authorisation requirement.
Natural and legal persons (e.B. GmbHs) can apply for exemption from the permit. Partnerships require a separate exemption from authorisation for each managing partner.

Product insurance intermediaries who are exempt from the authorisation requirement must nevertheless register and register in the placement register.
