The audit was conducted on 11 November 2021.


The objective of market surveillance is to monitor products covered by harmonised goods rules to ensure that only products that comply with applicable regulations are sold in the internal EU/EEA market.


No non-conformities were identified.

Three improvement points were identified, concerning declarations of conformity and nameplates.

What happens now?

We have asked Schlumberger to give us their assessment of the improvement points observed.

The reply deadline is set at 28 January 2022.

Market surveillance

Market surveillance is an obligation incumbent on the national authorities to monitor products that are marketed in Norway. Market surveillance is performed by proactive or reactive market inspections that entail checking that products meet applicable safety requirements. 

Proactive market surveillance is a planned approach in which we investigate whether products placed on the market comply with product regulations. Reactive market surveillance is performed primarily in response to incidents or suspicions that products do not meet the legal requirements.
