History

The FIOD-ECD was formed when the FIOD and the ECD (Dutch: Economische Controledienst) were merged in 1999. In 2010, the name was changed to FIOD.[1]

Role

The FIOD's main roles are in investigation and governance. Investigations are mainly carried out into economic, fiscal and financial fraud. Governance is carried out in economic and financial areas.[1]

Any one of the five main Dutch ministries (Economics, Finance, Foreign Affairs, Justice, and Health, Welfare and Sports) can order the FIOD to act on information of suspected fraud. They are also the investigational unit for several financial watchdogs.[citation needed]

Piracy

One of the investigative teams is the Team Opsporing Piraterij (Piracy Investigations Team) which specifically investigates breaches of the Copyright Act of 1912.[citation needed]

It has cooperated with BREIN to investigate p2p sites hosted in the Netherlands.[3][4]
