Norwegian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority

Nuclear safety and nuclear power


  • The Norwegian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (DSA) is responsible for overseeing safety at all Norwegian nuclear facilities: at Kjeller near Lillestrøm; inHalden; and at Himdalen in the county of Akershus.
  • The Norwegian research reactors have been closed and are now being prepared for decommissioning.
  • DSA’s responsibility also extends to safeguards-inspections in Norway. In this context, «safeguards» means the control of nuclear material which could be used in the manufacture of nuclear weapons. 
  • Visits from nuclear-powered naval vessels require a licence under the Nuclear Energy Activities Act. The Ministry of Defence grants licenses for the arrival of military vessels, and DSA is the recommending and advisory body to the Ministry.
