Yes. Norway has aligned its regulations with the principles laid down by EU Directive 2011/7/EU, which stipulates that payments in the EU must be made within 60 days. In accordance with the Norwegian Act relating to Interest on Overdue Payments, late payment interest may be claimed the day following the due date of the accounts receivable. Unless a contract provides a specific interest rate, the reference rate of the Norwegian Department of Justice (reviewed every six months), increased by 8 percentage points, may be applied. Interest is normally paid by the debtor but may also be used as a negotiation tool in order to preserve the business relationship.
Debt collection costs should be charged to the debtor in accordance with the Norwegian Debt Collection Act. In accordance with the EU directive, collection costs of EUR 40 may also be claimed, but these would be deducted from the debt collection fees paid by the debtor under the Debt Collection Act.

Details on legal service / process in Norway?
Litigation through the ordinary court system is the main dispute resolution method in Norway.

The system is adversarial in nature and the parties are in control of whether to bring or conclude an action and of the evidence to be presented and the arguments to be made. The court evaluates the arguments and evidence presented by the parties.
In civil law cases, the burden of proof lies on the party asserting a fact on the balance of probabilities. In some cases, the burden of proof can be reversed.
Court-sponsored mediation is part of the court litigation process.
