Procedure and documents for this change:

The Norwegian Criminal Cases Review Commission is an independent body which has responsibility for deciding whether convicted persons who seek review of their conviction/sentence should have their cases retried in court. If the Commission decides that there should be a review, the case will be referred for retrial before a court other than that which imposed the conviction/sentence.

The Norwegian Criminal Cases Review Commission was established by a revision of the Criminal Procedure Act Chapter 27. The amendment came into force on 1 January 2004.
