About Kontrollrådet:

Kontrollrådet offers its services both within the public and private sectors. Our main service is certification of building products with the aim to cover the requirements stated in the Norwegian Building Regulation 17 Chapter 3. We administer several certification schemes within the building sector and about 750 companies have joined our different schemes.

Kontrollrådet was established in December 1967 with the aim to run a mandatory approval scheme for concrete and concrete products. During the first years our business was extended with several voluntary certification schemes related to concrete and concrete products.

Today Kontrollrådet is established as a private foundation with the aim to be a leading notified body and certification body within our working areas. Our aim is thus strongly connected to our role as a notified body. We will, however still give priority to cover the market needs for voluntary certification schemes within our working areas.

Kontrollrådet is a notified body according to the Construction Products Regulation and is accredited for certification of products, quality systems and environmental systems.


We are running Approval and Certification Schemes within the following areas :

NS-EN ISO 9001:2015
