Some public authorities, such as NAV, the Norwegian Tax Administration, Statistics Norway, tax collection offices and the Norwegian National Collection Agency, have general access to the Register.

Other public authorities that require information from the Register to perform their tasks (as public authorities) may apply for access.  This also applies to public authorities in other countries.

Private parties may apply for access to the Register in connection with research when public interests warrant this information being provided.

NAV uses a data processor for distribution of the Register.

To obtain access to the NAV State Register of Employers and Employees, this must be applied for using form NAV 25-01.17, see www.nav.no, Access to the NAV State Register of Employers and Employees (Aa-registeret).
