Information regarding Aviation Security in Norway
Please be informed that Norway is a part of the EU “One-Stop” security system, and that all EU Security Regulations are implemented through Norwegian Security Regulations (The Regulation on the Prevention of Unlawful Acts against the Security of Civil Aviation of March 1st, 2011 no. 214 § 3) as required by the EEA Agreement.
Hence, the relevant requirements set out in Regulation (EU) 2015/1998 and Decision C(2015)8005 must be adhered to, as well as applicable Norwegian Security Regulations detailed in the National Aviation Security Program, unless alternative security measures under Regulation (EU) 1254/2009 are in effect at the airport or Demarcated Areas of the airport.
Access to these Regulations may be granted through the handling company/agent, or by contacting the Civil Aviation Authority – Norway – Security Section.
Operators requiring access to any Security Restricted Area are requested to complete the BSL Sec 1-1 Compliance Form (available upon request), cf. Norwegian Security Regulation § 16, at intervals not exceeding three (3) years.
Operators with less than four (4) flights to Norway annually need not submit a completed form.
Aircraft parking in Norwegian airports
Scheduled flights and non-scheduled flights with fare paying passengers (where individual tickets are available to the general public) will normally be assigned to parking stands in Critical Parts.
Other aircraft will likely be assigned parking in Demarcated Areas (DA). See Regulation (EU) No. 1254/2009 for a complete list of categories of aircraft/types of operations common in DA-areas.
Information for operators in Demarcated Areas
Aircraft operators and air carriers operating at airports or in Demarcated Areas of airports where alternative security measures apply, cf. Regulation (EU) No. 1254/2009, must adhere to local security measures as announced at the airport including the following
- You must carry an authorization.
- You must protect the aircraft against acts of unlawful interference.
- Before use, you must check the aircraft for signs of sabotage and/or objects that may jeopardize flight safety or security.
- You must consider the passengers’ state of mind.
- If you observe suspicious activities or persons, report to the local security point of contact.
- Flights transporting fare paying passengers (where individual tickets are available to the general public) may not operate from Demarcated Areas.
- All aircraft, regardless of size, must be protected sufficiently to prevent unauthorized access.
- Sufficient steps must be taken to ensure that the aircraft has not been subjected to acts of sabotage, and that no explosive or incendiary devices have been introduced. This includes any item to be loaded, or any item carried by passengers boarding the aircraft. Passengers must not have access to any item that may pose a threat to the safety of the aircraft.
- Passengers in police custody must always be escorted.
