​Criticism from the OAG in reports to the Storting is given in the form of two expressions:

  • 'Serious' refers to circumstances that could have major consequences, or errors and deficiencies that are so great collectively that the situation must be considered serious in itself. 'Very serious' is only used in exceptional cases, e.g. in the event of a risk to life or health.
  • 'Criticisable' is used to characterise deficient administration where the consequences are not necessarily serious, such as accounting errors or deficiencies, matters with purely financial consequences, infringements of regulations or issues that have been brought up previously but still have not been rectified. 'Strongly criticisable' is only used in exceptional cases.
