What does the applicant wish to have considered? Should the application have been sent somewhere else? You can find out by checking the list of regulated professions.
Most institutions have their own procedures stipulating what requirements must be met before an application can be considered. Have you received all the documents you need? You can check NOKUT's documentation requirements here.
There are four main types of false documents:

NOKUT assesses foreign education on the basis of the criteria for general recognition of foreign education. We can recognise foreign education that is equivalent to an accredited Norwegian university college graduate, bachelor's or master's degree. We can also recognise foreign education that is equivalent to an accredited Norwegian PhD.
It is up to the Norwegian higher education institutions to decide what foreign education can be granted specific recognition as part of a Norwegian degree, and whether courses taken abroad can form the basis for exemption from courses in a Norwegian study programme. The higher education institutions are not bound by NOKUT's general recognition decisions.
