As shipping is in principle a free industry, licences or permits are not granted in the strict sense. Many specific requirements apply to the crew, vessel and the operations themselves, however. Approval that the requirements have been met mainly takes the form of certification on the basis of inspections.
The issuing of international certificates for cargo ships with a gross tonnage of 500 tonnes or more, and for passenger ships (with the exception of high-speed passenger vessels) that are registered in the Norwegian International Ship Register (NIS) and can carry more than 12 passengers in international traffic, has been delegated to five recognised classification societies.
Applications must be sent to the Norwegian Maritime Authority.
