Technical information

We recommend that you use an up-to-date browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. You must enable Javascript:

  • Firefox: Tools - Settings - Enable Javascript.
  • Internet Explorer (versions 5.x - 8): Tools - Alternatives for internet - Security - Egendefinert nivå - Under skript: Choose "Aktiver for Aktiv skripting".

If you are using Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) or older versions, we recommend that you upgrade your browser. You might experience an error saying: "demanding object", on older versions of the Notification form. We do not recommend that you choose to troubleshoot the error. The solution to this problem is to update your browser or to lower the level of security in your browser: Tools - Alternatives for internet - security - middle to low. You may raise the level of security as soon as the Notification form has been submitted.


If you experience any issues when you press "print" or "pdf" in the Notification form, you might not have Adobe Reader installed on your computer. Adobe Reader is a free software which opens pdf-files. You may download the software here:

Most browsers have a built-in function that will block unwanted pop-up windows. If you experience that your browser has blocked the opening of a new window, disable pop-up protection so that the pdf-document will be opened in a new window. If disabling does not work, the reason might be that Internet Explorer blocks all automatic downloading of files. To avoid this issue try a different browser or disable this feature.

Turn off block:

English language of IE:

  1. Open Internet Explorer
  2. Choose tools -> Internet options -> Security -> Custom level
  3. Scroll down to Downloads
  4. Under Automatic prompting for file downloads, choose Enable, click "Ok".
  5. Restart Internet Explorer
