Brief about the “Transparency Act”

The Transparency Act shall promote businesses’ respect for basic human rights and decent working conditions in connection with the production of goods and the provision of services, and ensure the public has access to information about how businesses deal with negative consequences for basic human rights and decent working conditions.

The Transparency Act entered into force on 1. July 2022

Businesses that are covered by the Accounting Act § 1-5, or exceed the limits for two of the following three conditions:

  • Revenue: 70 million
  • Balance amount: NOK 35 million
  • Average number of employees in the financial year: 50 man-years

The steps you need to take now if you are affected:

  • Perform due diligence assessments
  • Publication of report and explanation of due diligence assessments
  • Make arrangements to answer the right of access for “anyone”

The steps are not just a checklist, but require work, the involvement of several people in the business as well as a structured work methodology to respond to legal requirements in accordance with OECDs guidelines.
