Public access policy

The Financial Mechanism Office (FMO) makes a series of proactive measures to provide access to key documents.

Documents in the following categories are available on this website:

Documents not listed above may be available upon request from the FMO. All requests for public access to documents related to the Financial Mechanisms should be sent to the following email address: fmo-access@efta.int.  Requests for access to documents are assessed in accordance with the EFTA States’ Standing Committee decision no 3/2007/SC.

The principle is that the widest possible access to all documents held by the FMO shall be granted.  However, access may not be granted in the cases foreseen in the EFTA States’ Standing Committee decision no 3/2007/SC. Where an exception is justified, it will be assessed whether access to parts of a document may be granted. In the event of a total or partial refusal, the applicant may refer the request to the Financial Mechanism Committee or the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
