NOU 2017: 4

Sharing Economy — – Opportunities and challenges

The Solberg Government appointed the Sharing Economy Committee by Royal Decree on 4 March 2016. Professor Tommy Staahl Gabrielsen (University of Bergen) chaired the Committee. In its mandate, the Committee was asked to evaluate opportunities and challenges presented by the sharing economy. The Committee was tasked with identifying and assessing regulatory provisions challenged by the sharing economy, including regulations in markets in which the sharing economy is particularly prominent. A further priority specified in the mandate, was the labour-market consequences of the sharing economy. Finally, the Committee was requested to consider consumer protection rules and the objective of consumer safety.
