The Norwegian Environment Agency and the various country governors control that enterprises comply with the environmental rules and regulations. 

If our inspections uncover non-compliance with the regulations, we impose a deadline for rectifying the matter. Non-compliance also entails follow-up supervision, fines, or that the case is reported to the police. Inspections are an essential instrument for ensuring that regulations are complied with. The Norwegian Environment Agency's supervision is based on the provisions and regulations laid down in the Pollution Control Act, the Greenhouse Gas Emission Trading Act, and the Product Control Act.
