Norway low-value consignment relief

Norway has been cleared to continuing to operate its VAT and customs duties exemption for low-value packages imported into the country.

The exemption was reviewed by the European Free Trade Area, which Norway is a part of.

A local trade association, claiming the allowance was discriminatory and amounted to illegal state aid, brought a prosecution. But it was not upheld.
