PR(02)20: The EFTA Surveillance Authority proposes appropriate measures to Norway with regard to state aid in the form of regionally differentiated social security taxation (“geografisk differensiert arbeidsgiveravgift”)

26.9.2002

The EFTA Surveillance Authority decided today to propose appropriate measures to Norway with regard to State aid in the form of Regionally Differentiated Social Security Taxation (“Geografisk differensiert arbeidsgiveravgift”).

According to the proposal, the Norwegian authorities shall take the necessary measures to eliminate any State aid within the meaning of Article 61(1) EEA resulting from the system of regionally differentiated social security tax, or to render such aid compatible with Article 61 of the EEA Agreement with effect from 1 January 2004. The Norwegian authorities shall communicate to the Authority the relevant measures adjusting the aid scheme as soon as possible and in any event no later than 25 March 2003. The Norwegian authorities are requested to inform the Authority within one month that they accept this proposal for appropriate measures.

For further information please contact Mr. Amund Utne on tel. +32-2-286 1850 or Mr. Rolf Egil Tønnessen on tel. +32-2-286 18 56.
