Directives og regulations

In the Treaty of the European Economic Area Norway is obliged to implement all EU-regulation for the financial sector and have its regulation in complience with EU-standards as if the country was an EU-member itself. Directives, regulations and recommendations etc may therefore be a source to interpret and understand Norwegian regulations. Drafts and regulations in the pipeline may give indications to expected amendments in the Norwegian markets.

Directives are given an official translation to Norwegian prior to implementation, while other material may be in all EU-languages or only English.
