“The SCA highlights that regular and constructive engagement with all relevant stakeholders is essential for NHRIs to fulfil their mandates effectively. In this regard it acknowledges the NNHRI’s engagement and cooperation with national Ombuds institutions. 

The SCA encourages the NNHRI to continue to develop, formalise and maintain working relationships, as appropriate, with other domestic institutions established for the promotion and protection of human rights, including in particular Ombuds institutions in Norway as well as civil society organizations.”
