The EEA agreement – vital to Norwegian financial services – but no smooth sailing
The EEA agreement ensures Norwegian access to and rights in the internal market for everything except fish and farm produce. For insurance and other financial services, it affiliates the small Norwegian market with the internationally known and acknowledged rules of the single market, provided that the rules are implemented into Norwegian law in the same way that EU members implement the acquis. Thus, Norwegian insurers get the clear and certain legal framework needed, albeit without being able to influence it.
