components for land-based fish farms must pass a new certification process

Suppliers of components for land-based fish farms in Norway have started undertaking a new certification process following the launch of a new regulation in Norway.

In January, a new regulation detailing technical requirements for land-based fish farms will take effect in Norway. The regulation states, among other things, that all facilities must acquire a permit from the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries by 1 January 2021. 

In order to qualify for these permits, all components at the facility that are significant for preventing fish escape, must comply with the requirements in the NS 9416:2013 standard. This means, for example, that all new fish tanks, hoses and pipes must have a product certification. 

The purpose of the NS 9416:2013 standard is to prevent fish escapes, which can cause major financial losses and have unfortunate environmental impact.
