Ragn-Sells’ Public Procurement Dispute


Cobalt represented Ragn-Sells AS on the dispute.

The Supreme Court gave guidance on how local authorities should conduct procurements of organized waste removal, and the most important guideline was to regulate the legal relations between the local government and the subsequent waste handler. In the Vinni waste removal concession, the legal relationship between the municipality and the waste handler referred to in the procurement document was unregulated. The local authority’s membership in the waste management center, the designation of the center as one of the potential waste management sites in the waste management regulations and the statutes of the waste management center did not create a legal basis for waste management.
