The Norwegian government has moved to liberalise its alcohol retail system, following the order from the European Free Trade Area Court that it should scrap its discriminatory beer retail system. At present the sale of brands of between 2.5% and 4.75% abv outside the state alcohol monopoly Vinmonopolet is generally limited to domestically-produced lines.

Norway's parliament will now discuss a bill allowing all products up to 4.5 % abv to be sold in normal food stores. The government had wanted to act sooner, passing the law before the summer parliamentary break, but it will now be debated in the autumn, to be in force by January 1, 2003.
