The internal guidelines (IR) are the overriding governing documents that are intended to ensure high quality and efficient case processing. They set out the key aspects of UNE’s legal obligations and its case processing procedures. UNE’s director general approves all internal guidelines. The internal guidelines are only available in Norwegian.
