About Us

Last updated: 16 February 2017 .

We manage a number of registries and other similar functions.

More about us and our vision

The Brønnøysund Register Centre develops and operates many of the nation’s most important registers and electronic solutions. Administering Altinn, coordinating data in the public sector and providing advisory services are central tasks that make things easier for business and industry.


We shall be a world leader in the best interests of Norwegian business and industry and public administration.

The Brønnøysund Register Centre’s main tasks are to:

  • Instil trust, both as a source of data and in exercising authority
  • Simplify business and industrial collaboration with the public sector
  • Simplify Norwegian public administration

Financial security through providing an overview

The operation of the Brønnøysund Register Centre is largely concerned with keeping an overview of who is committed to doing what. The Register of Mortgaged Movable Property makes it possible to mortgage assets, because both the borrower and the lender have faith in the register’s ability to keep an overview of what has been agreed between the parties. In the same way, the Register of Business Enterprises and the Central Coordinating Register for Legal Entities ensure that there will be no doubt as to what type of responsibility has been assumed by whom. Openness and keeping an overview prevents financial crime. Reliable and relevant information provides financial security.

Collaboration and simplification

The Brønnøysund Register Centre plays a key role in simplifying reporting duties for business and industry in their dealings with the public administration. Being the agency responsible for the joint Altinn portal, we make information and forms available in one place. We are developing SERES with specification of enterprise data to be collected by the public sector, so as to facilitate reuse and reduce the number of questions that have to be answered in each case. We are also responsible for the ELMER guidelines, which ensure that necessary forms  are kept as simple as possible with common, recognizable design features and online functionality. As a basis for all this, the Central Coordinating Register for Legal Entities ensures that public agencies can cooperate and exchange data through the use of a joint organization number.

On request, the Brønnøysund Register Centre can adapt courses and talks on topics within its area of expertise, which is the development and operation of society’s most important registers and electronic solutions.
