Control system

This section provides information about the control system and national guidance set up in Norway for the 2021-2027 programming period.

The costs associated with this control are indicated so that they can be planned for in your project's budget.

The costs

The costs resulting from the control are borne by the project partners and can be reported as eligible costs in compliance with the relevant EU regulations and programme rules.

On-the-spot checks

Verifications on-the-spot will be organised on a sample basis. However, for pilot actions which includes reported equipment/infrastructure costs, at least one on-the-spot check should be carried out (on-the-spot, not virtually) .
