List of regulated professions

Below is an alphabetical list of regulated professions in Norway.

If you wish to work in one of these professions, you must first obtain authorisation/recognition of your professional qualifications. Find information about the application process and recognition authorities by choosing from the list.

If you can not find your profession in this list, this may be due to the fact that it requires no specific recognition before you can begin to work in Norway. Professions such as engineer, economist, social worker, journalist, beautician and painter/decorator are not regulated and do not require recognition or authorisation.
