Norway Mid-Term Report 2016-2018 – For Public Comment

We invite you to comment on the Independent Reporting Mechanism’s Year 1 Report for Norway’s second action plan. The two-week public comment closed Monday, 23 April 2018.

In 2018, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Year 1 report for Norway’s second action plan. The report covers the first year of action plan implementation: June 2016 through June 2017.

The findings from the report are summarized below in English:

“Norway’s action plan included commitments in relevant policy areas such as access to information, financial data disclosure, and corporate reporting. While progress has been made in implementation, some areas need strengthening. Moving forward, commitments need to be specific with regard to intended results and activities. Stakeholders recommend prioritizing further development of online public records and setting up a public register of company beneficial ownership.”

and in Norwegian:

“Norges handlingsplan inkluderer forpliktelser innenfor relevante områder som tilgang til informasjon, åpenhet om offentlige budsjetter og næringsliv. Selv om det har vært fremdrift i gjennomføringen, er det en del områder hvor innsatsen må styrkes. Fremtidige handlingsplaner bør ha mer konkrete målsettinger og forventede resultater. Sivilsamfunnet prioriterer videre utvikling av tilgang på offentlige dokumenter og etableringen av et offentlig eierskapsregister.”
