The Norwegian Railway Authority also keeps statistics based on reported serious railway incidents and railway incidents (near-accidents). These statistics are used as input for the Inspectorate's work. These statistics provide the Authority with a picture of the types of deviations from normal operation that occur, which are significant for railway safety and are reported during railway operation. The reports of near-accidents and deviations from normal operation are one of the means by which the Authority can become aware of dangerous conditions before an accident happens.
