Industry security provides activities and measures to ensure that suppliers of the Norwegian Armed Forces can receive, retain, contribute and use classified information, equipment and material according to applicable law, regulations and provisions.
Industry security in the Armed Forces is regulated by Norwegian Law on Safety of 1998 and includes giving security-related guidance, setting requirements, approving, inspecting and controlling the Armed Forces suppliers, provided that the procurement is subject to security classification.
