Other users with responsibilities within public safety may in time be given the opportunity to use Nødnett.

Multiple users connected to a common robust nationwide communications network give new possibilities for sharing of information and cooperation across geographical and organizational borders.

The Parliament of Norway Storting has assumed that other user groups with responsibilities within public safety should be able to become users in Nødnett in the future. The emphasis is on achieving the greatest possible benefit to society through a broad utilization of Nødnett. The Standing Committee of Justice has pointed out that the new network should become one of the pillars of the overall defence in the future.


The possibility of becoming a user in Nødnett will be determined in an overall assessment of the user, and given demands must be met before a user is eventually considered.

At least one of the following demands must be met to be able to be considered as a user of Nødnett:

  • Defined responsibility for safety and rescue
  • Close contact with public safety organizations in performance of their duties 
  • Responsible for critical services in the community
  • Performs important services of a certain level of great social importance
  • Owner or operator of critical infrastructure
