Welcome to Bodø
The Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection (DSB) reports to the Ministry of Justice and Public Security.
DSB's overall task is maintaining a complete overview of various risks and vulnerability in general. Our responsibilities cover local, regional and national preparedness and emergency planning, fire safety, electrical safety, handling and transport of hazardous substances, as well as product and consumer safety.
Nødnett – the Norwegian Emergency Public Safety Network, a separate radio network, built specifically for rescue and emergency users, is owned and managed by DSB.
Furthermore, the Norwegian Civil Defence, the DSB College, the Norwegian Fire Academy (Norges brannskole) and the Civil Defence Academy belong to DSB's portfolio. As do the Norwegian Support Team (NST), an internationally focused emergency capacity.
The Norwegian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (DSA) is the national authority and expert body in matters concerning nuclear safety, radiation use, natural radiation, and radioactive contamination in the environment. DSA is also the expert body concerning concessions for nuclear facilities.
DSA strives to reduce the negative consequences of radiation by ensuring that the handling of radiation sources, radioactive waste and discharges, medical radiation use, and closure and clean-up of nuclear facilities (decommissioning) are carried out correctly and responsibly. DSA also works to reduce exposure to natural radiation from radon and UV and is responsible for managing exposure from electromagnetic fields.
DSA strives to improve nuclear safety internationally and to prevent the dispersal of radioactive material. DSA carries out the societal mission through administering regulations, conducting surveillance, guiding, informing, providing advice, and managing knowledge. The agency chairs and serves as the secretariat for nuclear preparedness in Norway.
