The Norwegian legislation differs from that of the EU with regard to customs surveillance.
It is currently less risky to import large quantities of counterfeit goods into Norway than into most EU member states. Statistics from the Norwegian Customs Authority show that the volume of counterfeit products imported into Norway has increased rapidly, and there are indications that this figure will continue to grow.
Norway has in many ways become a gateway to the EU for counterfeit products, since border controls in relation to fake goods, in particular between Norway and Sweden, have traditionally not been very strict. It is essential for brand holders to know how the Norwegian system works so that they can identify the best way to prevent counterfeit goods from entering Norway.
