Norwegian Agricultural Inspection Service (Norwegian: Landbrukstilsynet) is a defunct Norwegian government agency that was responsible for inspection of farms and agricultural facilities in the country. As of January 1, 2004 it merged with a number of other agencies to create the Norwegian Food Safety Authority.

History

The agency was created in 1984 when a number of previous independent agencies were merged to create the inspection service. Prior to this each agency had a specialized field for control, including independent agencies for inspection of seeds, plant breeding, plant inspection, toxins, agricultural chemicals, vegetable conservations, margarine and dairy products. None of these had any inter-agency coordination, creating chaos.
