The Company's highest authority is its General Meeting which comprises elected representatives of the Company's owners. The General Meeting for 2018-2020 comprises 173 delegates. These are elected from 22 election constituencies.

Each county authority together with its municipalities comprises its election constituency with the exception of Oslo which forms part of the Akerhus County constituency. Each of the regional health enterprises with its subsidiaries forms its own constituency and the companies together form one election constituency. In each constituency an election meeting is held to elect delegates to the General Meeting. The number of votes is linked to the size of the customer relationship.

The General Meeting:

  • approves the annual accounts and allocation of profits or coverage of losses
  • approves the annual report
  • elects the Control Committee and 24 of the 45 members of the Supervisory Board
  • sets the remuneration of the Supervisory Board and Control Committee
  • approves any changes in KLP's Articles of Association.
