In the last five years, the National Population Registry has gone through a modernization process worth more than NOK 500 million.
On Tuesday, the new Registry was opened.
The aim of the project has been to create a register with better quality information, as well as faster and more automated case management for the Tax Administration and other users of the National Population Register.
Among other things, it will be easier to share information with public and private actors who use the National Population Registry.
“This means that, in most cases, it is only necessary to give the information once, for example, when a new address needs to be reported.
Institutions such as schools, kindergartens, hospitals, doctors’ offices, and the NAV will be able to obtain addresses or other relevant information directly from the Population Registry,” Finance Minister Jan Tore Sanner (H) said.
About two million changes are reported to the Registry each year.
A total of 10.6 million people are registered in the National Population Registry, a number that includes the living, the dead, and people with a temporary connection to Norway.
