Report on the legal framework for the Norwegian ocean industries

Arntzen de Besche has delivered a comprehensive report to the Norwegian Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries, with a comparative analysis of the legal framework for the seafood industries, the petroleum industry and the maritime industry in Norway.

Norway is one of the world's leading ocean nations. With the aim of securing and to further develop this position, the Norwegian Government presented its ocean strategy in March 2017. The comparative analysis from Arntzen de Besche is a part of the follow up of the ocean strategy. The analysis identifies and discusses similarities and differences in the legal framework, with the purpose of facilitating development of a better legal framework that can contribute to further growth and development in the ocean industries.

The report was prepared by a team of lawyers in Arntzen de Besche with special expertise and experience from the ocean industries.

The report is available here (only in Norwegian).
