The European Antitrust Review 2015

Norway: Overview

On 1 January 2014, the revised Norwegian Competition Act (the Act) entered into force. The main features of the amendments are a considerable increase in filing thresholds and a more flexible merger procedure. The revision also introduces a settlement procedure in antitrust cases, an improved regulation on leniency and stronger safeguards for companies during investigations. The result is a national legislation in closer harmonisation with the EU rules.
