The purpose of these guidelines is to provide an overview and summary of the regulations, in order to ensure predictability and equal treatment for all actors. Section 100 of the Constitution and the international human rights rules which Norway is bound by, provide a framework for practical application of the Act.
An important purpose of the guidelines is to explain the Norwegian Media Authority's practice. However, the Norwegian Media Authority reserves the right to develop its practice on the basis of specific cases. In those areas where there is as yet no established practice, the guidelines only contain signals on how the Media Authority is intending to practice the law in future cases. Thus no rights may be deduced from such signals, and the signals will have limited weight compared with established practice.
