Declaration of fire regulations

The Fire Authorities requires a declaration from each exhibitor concerning the Fire Regulations.

The exhibition will be inspected prior to the opening to assure that these regulations are followed.

The use of polystyrene, straw or paper for decoration purposes is not permitted. (see Regulations No 15)


Relevant provisions in the fire service regulations relating to stands, pavilions and decorations in the exhibition centre are listed below.

1. Inflammable temporary furnishing, decorations and carpets must be fireproofed.
2. Easily ignitable and combustible materials must not be stored or used on the premises without the express permission of Norway Trade Fairs.
3. Self-ignitable waste must be stored only in places approved by Norway Trade Fairs.
4. Smoking and the use of fire or naked flames on the premises is forbidden.

Fabrics stretched directly on the walls must be fireproofed with approved fire-resistant textile impregnation. The use of straw, polystyrene, paper, cardboard, sacking or other easily ignitable decorative materials is not permitted without the express permission of Norway Trade Fairs. In the event of any doubts about the interpretation of these regulations, the exhibitor – to avoid the risk that the fire service will demand the removal of materials – must contact Norway Trade Fairs. 

Storage of petrol in the exhibition area is not permitted. Fuel tanks on petrol-driven vehicles must be either full or empty. Exhibitors must specifically notify the organiser about the possible positioning of cars, motorcycles and so forth on the stand.

Gas/gas cylinders
Storing/using propane gas/cylinders or other ignitable gases in the exhibition area is not permitted during the exhibition period. Should an exhibitor wish to use/sell gas, they must contact the technical coordinator for approval.

Sprinkler system:
No equipment of any kind must be attached to or hung from the sprinkler system.

Evacuation routes:
Evacuation routes must not be blocked. No posters or similar materials which might prevent people from seeing emergency exit signs or which might fall down in the event of fire may be hung in evacuation routes.

Smoking is banned in the exhibition halls. The fire risk is high in the exhibition halls during both assembly and disassembly, and the use of fire in any form is prohibited.

Hot work:
Work must not begin until written authorisation has been issued by Norway Trade Fairs. Welding sparks can ignite fires at a distance of 10 metres, and even cold sparks can have a temperature of more than 500°C.
