New system for the Transparency Act

Briefly about the Norwegian Transparency Act

The Transparency Act is a new law that entered into force on 1. July 2023. It obliges companies covered by the law to carry out due diligence assessments of their suppliers with regard to decent working conditions and basic human rights.

These companies are therefore required to report and risk assess their suppliers, and must be able to document this to anyone who requests the information – including the general public.

Sindre Beba, Produktansvarlig for ShareControl Transparency

The Act covers all companies that offer goods and services in Norway and exceed two of the following three conditions:

  • Turnover of NOK 70 million in the financial year
  • Balance of NOK 35 million
  • 50 man-years during the financial year

In addition, the Transparency Act covers all ASA and listed companies. According to the Norwegian Consumer Protection Authority, this applies to just under 9,000 Norwegian businesses.
