Change in the domain name policy, 8 March 2010
The list of organization types that may register domain names within .no (appendix E) is due for an update.
“Pensjonskasser” are independent organizations in accordance with the requirements set in the .no domain name policy. The organization type “pensjonskasse” will therefore be added to appendix E.
Exceptions for individual organizations
From time to time organizations that clearly satisfy our independency requirements, but are not allowed by the Brønnøysund Register Center to register in any other category than “annen juridisk person” turn up. When there is a clearly defined group of such organizations, like embassies or official committees, the solution is to make a specific exception for the group.
To manage those organizations that cannot easily be sorted into such a group, we are now introducing a rule of exception that depends on the two following conditions being met:
- The organization satisfies Norid’s requirements for independency and can document this, and
- the organization has attempted to register as something other than “annen juridisk person”, but has been told by the Brønnøysund Register Center that they may not register in any other category. The organization can document this.
The following will be added to the bottom of appendix E:

In addition, Norid can upon receiving a written application make exceptions from the list above for organizations that are registered in the category “annen juridisk person” and that cannot register within any other category, and that:
Norid find to be clearly independent organizations that demonstrably run genuine operations and/or has activities and reality as given in the Central Coordinating Register for Legal Entities within the mandate given by the organization’s institutors/owners. The organization must present written documentation for its independence and operations/activities as mentioned, in the form of statutes, formation documents/corporate charters, copies of the memorandum of incorporation, and what the organization otherwise finds relevant as documentation.
at the same time presents written documentation from the Central Coordinating Register for Legal Entities that explains why the organization is not permitted to register within any other category in the Central Coordinating Register for Legal Entities, and that confirms that the organization must register within the “annen juridisk person” category. Such documentation cannot be dated earlier than six months before the application is received by Norid.
Norid is not obliged to make any independent inquiry before the deciding on the application. A new application from an organization that Norid does not find to qualify for this exception will not be considered until one year after Norid’s initial denial.
