Member banks shall inform customers in writing about the deposit guarantee scheme that applies to the bank. The information must be provided in a standardised format determined by the Norwegian Banks' Guarantee Fund. This follows from Section 16-5 of the Financial Institutions Act (in Norwegian).

The Norwegian Banks' Guarantee Fund has created a template for an information letter. The document has been processed in the committee Fagutvalg kontrakt in Finans Norge. The template was last updated in the autumn of 2021. The banks may use the template, among other things, as an attachment to the account agreement and the annual statement. The template consists of two pages.

Here you will find the template for the information letter (in Norwegian only). (DOCX, 21KB)
