The Norwegian Government grants the transportation sector a 3-month temporary exception from the Competition Act as special measure due to COVID-19

Transportation sector is granted temporary exception from the Competition Act*

Following the corona epidemic, the Norwegian government has as of today granted the transportation sector a three months temporary exception from the prohibition against anticompetitive agreements and practices in the Norwegian Competition Act. The exception makes it possible, in particular, to maintain the transportation of passenger and goods in Norway in order to secure the population access to necessary goods and services.

The exception does not go further than what is strictly necessary. Agreements and practices covered by the exception must to the largest extent possible further the efficient use of resources and the interests of consumers. The Authority must be notified if the exception is relied on.
