The Norwegian Civil Affairs Authority's role in processing appeals

The Norwegian Civil Affairs Authority is the secretariat of The Compensation Board for Victims of Violent Crime (the board). The Norwegian Civil Affairs Authority's task is to prepare the appeals for processing by the board.

The board has authorised The Norwegian Civil Affairs Authority to rule on appeals where the decision does not give rise to significant doubt or requires medical expertise. About 2/3 of the cases are ruled on by The Norwegian Civil Affairs Authority by the power of its delegated authority.
