Norwegian Defence and Security Industries Association (FSi)

FSi is the largest and most important association in Norway advocating the interests of the Norwegian Defence and Security Industry and the primary interlocutor for the government in matters of importance to the industry.

FSi's mission is to foster framework conditions for member companies to succeed in the domestic and global defence and security markets, thereby contributing to Norway's defence and security goals.

 

FSi is the single point of contact for the Norwegian Government and authorities in strategic and political issues that affect the Norwegian defence and security industry. The association is also a focal point for foreign contractors seeking cooperation with Norwegian companies in relation to Norwegian defence procurements abroad and international collaborative programmes.

 

The FSi administration supports the member companies through advocacy, which means representing the interests of the industry to the Government, the armed forces, opinion leaders, international organizations and the general public. They also provide networking opportunities for their members and general advices including seminars and courses in subjects relevant to the industry.

 

FSi represents Norway in NIAG (NATO Industrial Advisory Group) and is a member of ASD (Aerospace and Defence Industries Association of Europe). Through these organizations, FSi is a key facilitator for Norwegian industrial participation in international projects and studies.

 

FSi is affiliated, and shares premises, with the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO), the main representative body for Norwegian enterprises with a current membership of over 17,000 companies – a link which provides FSi with additional clout in its dialogue with the government and the Armed Forces.
