The Standing Committee on Scrutiny and Constitutional Affairs

The Storting has organised its supervisory work in different ways over the years. From 1814 to 1972 it was the responsibility of the Protocol Committee. From 1972 to 1981 it was dealt with by the various standing committees.

A separate Standing Committee on Scrutiny was established in 1981. Its areas of responsibility were limited initially and its members also sat on other standing committees. Since1993 the Storting has had a separate supervisory committee: the Standing Committee on Scrutiny and Constitutional Affairs. The creation of this committee represented a strengthening of the Storting’s supervisory role. Today’s committee has wider powers than its predecessors.
