Articles from resett.no on Corona Certificate in Norway: https://resett.no/?s=koronasertifikat
On 12 May there is a deadline for sending consultation responses to the Government's proposal for a Corona Certificate, and thus be able to put a final stop to the Corona Certificate. The same was done with the Curfew proposal that was rejected on several grounds, where it was submitted as a consultation response where there was strong opposition from the Norwegian population.
This is urgent and any Norwegian citizen may voice their opinion on this matter if one wants to prevent the Corona Certificate. You can send it anonymously. Just keep in mind that you may need to use an unofficial email address and a good VPN (better to be safe than sorry)

(Translated to English)
Consultation | Date: 05.05.2021
In this consultation memorandum, the Ministry proposes a temporary new chapter 4A in the Infection Control Act with rules on corona certificates. The purpose of the new regulations is to establish a system for safe and verified documentation of vaccination status, immunity after undergoing corona disease and test results. Furthermore, the proposal will facilitate the introduction of a forthcoming EU regulation and give the ministry authority to effectively regulate the use of a corona certificate in regulations when needed.
Consultation on corona certificates - amendments to the Infection Control Act (in Norwegian only)
In this consultation document, the Ministry proposes a temporary new Chapter 4A of the Infection Control Act with provisions on corona certificates. In line with the Government's long-term strategy for dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, infection control measures and their easing shall take place in accordance with a 4-step reopening plan. The plan calls for a step-by-step reduction of the national measures.
The purpose of the new provisions of the Infection Control Act is to establish a system for safe and verified documentation of vaccination status, immunity after corona illness and test results. Furthermore, the proposal shall facilitate the introduction of an upcoming EU Regulation and that the Ministry may, by regulations, regulate the use of a corona certificate when necessary. However, the Ministry's proposed statutory provisions do not regulate in which cases easing of infection control measures can be made to persons who hold such documentation.
The assessment of whether it is possible to differentiate infection control measures based on vaccination status, immunity after undergoing COVID-19 or negative test results must be carried out on the basis of existing legal basis in the Infection Control Act (in Norwegian only) and the Temporary Act relating to entry restrictions for foreign nationals for public health reasons. It will also be an independent question whether it is proportionate to maintain infection control measures in relation to a group that poses a low risk of spreading infection, and which can document this in a safe and verifiable way.
The Ministry assumes that the need for the proposed Norwegian provisions is of a temporary nature, and therefore proposes that the Norwegian regulations have validity for 12 months.
The consultation statements are preferably sent digitally via the Ministry's website. The consultative bodies can register, save the response, and upload attachments. The consultative bodies can also send consultation responses without registering.
The deadline for giving a consultation statement is Wednesday 12 May.
