How to

Norway participates in the EU single market. EU-based suppliers are encouraged to compete for public and private sector procurement contracts in Norway. E-procurement capabilities are helpful, as Norway is currently moving its public sector procurement processes to digital platforms.

Why e-procurement

Using e-procurement expands your opportunities in the Norwegian market. It can also reduce your operating costs and increase the value you deliver for customers.

  1. register as a business eligible to operate in Norway
  2. open a bank account in Norway or on a Single Euro Payments Area bank
