Governing documents and reports
The Norwegian parliament, the Storting, determines the financial frameworks and overall objectives for export financing in Norway. The Minister of Trade and Industry has constitutional responsibility for Eksfin, and the management of the agency is taken care of by the Norwegian Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries.
The ministry’s overall governance of Eksfin takes place through the board, several central documents, half-yearly management meetings, and the ongoing sharing of information.
The ministry is not represented on Eksfin’s board and is not involved in the processing of individual cases.
The annual allocation notice is sent to Eksfin once the state budget has been approved by the Storting. The allocation notice provides the financial frameworks and priorities, performance targets, reporting requirements, and specific professional guidelines and assignments. Furthermore, Eksfin must adhere to a main instruction and a regulation.
Eksfin must additionally adhere to international regulations through the OECD and EEA.
