The Norwegian Transparency Act 

The purpose of the Norwegian Transparency Act is to:

  • To promote enterprise respect for fundamental human rights and decent working conditions; and
  • Ensure that the general public has access to information regarding how enterprises address adverse impacts on fundamental human rights and decent working conditions.

The law is based on OECD’s guidelines for multinational companies.

The Norwegian Transparency Act entered into force on 1 July 2022. The Consumer Authority (Forbrukertilsynet) is the supervisory body which manages this law.
