- Definition of the term “regularisation”
By "regularisation", the National Bank means the adaptation of its published protests file by the addition of a regularisation date. Therefore, the regularisation does not result in the removal of the protest from the file: the National Bank continues to refer both to the negative information (publication of the protest) and the positive (addition of a regularisation date). However, the National Bank undertakes to communicate the regularisation to its subscribers regarding protest information which, at the time of publication, had received the negative information.
- Methods of regularisation
- Proof of payment may be sent directly to the National Bank which will then analyse the file and, if applicable, proceed to regularisation. Concrete methods (inter alia, relating to payment of applicable costs) and the regularisation form to be used can be consulted below
- The National Bank also accepts a written attestation confirming the payment and issuing from the financial institution which presented the bill for collection and which is referred to as the bearer/beneficiary. Given that this is a manual procedure, processing will also entail additional costs which will be charged to your financial institution, in principle.
