About the Credibility of the Register

ROBEK

If a municipality or a county municipality is registered in the Register for State Review and Approval of Financial Obligations, resolutions to raise loans or to enter long-term renting contracts are not valid until approved by the County Governor or the Ministry. Thus, municipalities and county municipalities must inform their co-contractors that they have been made subject to approval.

Information available at http://robek.dep.no must be considered to be known by any co-contractor. A co-contractor cannot plead ignorance based on being in good faith. Regarding the register’s legal credibility, meaning in which extent a co-contractor may rely on the information provided, the register will both have positive and negative credibility. This means that information provided will be accurate (positive credibility) and complete (negative credibility).
