The EFTA Surveillance Authority (ESA) has approved Norway's planned expansion of an aid scheme granting tax and social security contributions refunds to shipping companies.

The current aid scheme, without the planned expansion, came into force in 2016 and will run until 2026. ESA's approval means that Norway can go ahead with plans to expand the scheme to include passenger ferries that are registered in the Norwegian ship register NIS and are offering overnight lodging on sailing routes longer than 300 nautical miles between Norwegian and foreign ports. The amended measure is planned to enter into force on 1 July.
