Report fraud and irregularities

Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway have a zero-tolerance policy on corruption and mismanagement in the EEA and Norway Grants. Complaints and alerts on suspected fraud and irregularities may be submitted directly to any entity involved in the implementation of the grant schemes, including the Financial Mechanism Office (FMO), Secretariat of the EEA and Norway Grants.

The EEA and Norway Grants follow a policy of good governance, and their implementation are founded on the principles of openness, transparency and accountability.

In line with Article 12.7 of the Regulations on the implementation of the EEA and Norwegian Financial Mechanisms, each Beneficiary State has established a complaint mechanism which handles complaints, including alerts on suspected fraud and irregularities.

Complaints and alerts may also be shared with the FMO who will promptly follow up on the suspected fraud and irregularities according to internal procedures. Ensuring the anonymity of the complainant and confidentiality of the information submitted to the FMO is of the highest importance.

Members of the public who suspect mismanagement or corruption under the EEA and Norway Grants are encouraged to share their concerns with the National Focal Point of the Beneficiary State, the Fund Operators of the Active Citizens Fund, the FMO or other agent responsible for the management of the grant schemes. Please provide as detailed information as possible about the facts you are aware of. Complaints addressed to the FMO should be submitted in English.
