Registration

Business enterprises manufacturing or importing and distributing radio, telecommunications terminal and network equipment must be registered with the Norwegian Communications Authority (Nkom). The duty to register is stipulated in the Regulations relating to the registration and requirements for the import and sale of radio, telecommunications terminal and network equipment (Registration Regulations).

The purpose of registration is, among other things, to facilitate the supervision of imports and sales of radio, telecommunications terminal and network equipment and to ensure that suppliers, retailers and users receive necessary information.

Business enterprise manufacturing/importing and distributing radio, telecommunications terminal and network equipment must be registered as supplier. 

Business enterprise distributing radio equipment that requires a frequency licence must be registered as retailer. 

Business enterprise that is registered as supplier is not required to register as retailer. 

When registering, a separate registration form must be used.

The registration must contain the following information: 

  • name of the business enterprise
  • address
  • email address
  • telephone number
  • organisation number 
  • contact person

Registration is linked to the organisation number and cannot be transferred. 

Authorisation

Section 3 of Regulations no. 1206 of 7 December 2011 on authorisation for installation contractors performing installation and maintenance of electronic communications networks (Authorisation Regulations).
