Country-specific information

First level control information

This section provides information on the system set up for first level control in your country. Any costs associated with this control are indicated so they can be planned for in any project budget.

The system

Norway has opted for a decentralised control system. Before the first expenditure can be reported, the project partners will have to select an independent internal or external controller, provided that he is registered on the shortlist or apply to be registered. The minimum requirement for being registered is the title of Registered Public Accountant or State Authorised Public Accountant as regulated by the Financial Supervisory Authority of Norway.

This internal or external controller will have to be proposed to the following body:

Audit/ Oslo
Vika Atrium, Munkedamsveien 45, PB 1704 Vika, 0121 Oslo

Contact person:

Terje Tvedt
Phone: +47 98 20 62 91
Email: [email protected]

This body will authorise the controller proposed by the project partner after having checked that the controller is sufficiently independent from project activities and finances and qualified to carry out the control of an INTERREG Europe project.

The costs

The costs resulting from the control can be reported as eligible costs in compliance with the relevant EU-regulations and programme rules.

On-the-spot checks

The first level controllers will carry out on-the-spot-checks on a sample basis.
