Applying for authorization

Start with considering if you can fly in the open category. If you can, proceed to this page.

Operators from EASA member states

If you are from an EASA member state that has implemented the UAS regulation, you can apply according to article 13 in Regulation (EU) 2019/947. This means that you first obtain operational authorization from the authorities in your country. Then you submit to us:

  • Form 1154E
  • Your operational authorization
  • Proof of valid liability insurance
  • If applicable, an updated part of the OM that addresses risks which are specific to the local airspace, terrain and population characteristics and climatic conditions.

Remember that before flying with sensors, you must register the use of photos, video and other sensors with the Norwegian National Security Authority.

Operators from third countries

As Norway has not implemented the part of the European UAS regulation that applies to third countries yet, you will have to apply according to Norwegian national rules. Please see this page on how to proceed.

However, if you have already registered and obtained authorization in another EASA member state, you can apply using the steps described under "operators from EASA member states".

Remember that before flying with sensors, you must register the use of photos, video and other sensors with the Norwegian National Security Authority.
