Norway's Arms Exports - Regulation

Guidelines of 28 February 1992 for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for dealing with applications concerning the 37 export of arms, military equipment and components, and technology and services for military use apply to the procedures to be followed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when dealing with applications for the export of arms, military equipment and components, and technology and services for military use. The main principle is the government statement of 11 March 1959…

The guidelines of 1992 contain requirements for end-user documentation. According to these, documentation is always required before an export license for military equipment can be granted.

An export licence will normally be granted for the export of arms and ammunition if the customer is, or is acting on behalf of, the defence authorities of NATO member states, Nordic countries or other countries that Norway has decided to sell such equipment to.

The end user must be substantiated by documentation. A licence to export arms and ammunition to countries other than those mentioned above, must be dealt with by the Government, and the granting of such a licence requires the submission of an officially confirmed end-user statement containing a re-export clause, i.e. a statement to the effect that re-export must not take place without the approval of the Norwegian authorities.
