The Standing Committee on Scrutiny and Constitutional Affairs (Norwegian: Kontroll- og konstitusjonskomiteen) is a standing committee of the Parliament of Norway. It holds a supervisory role in relation to the proceedings of the parliament and public sector.[1] The committee has 12 members and is chaired by Martin Kolberg of the Labour Party.[2]

The rules require that all parliamentary parties be represented on this committee[3] and by convention, the committee is chaired by a member of the largest opposition party.[4]

From 1814 to 1972, the supervision of parliament was the responsibility of the Protocol Committee. From 1972 to 1981, it was dealt with by the standing committees. The Standing Committee on Scrutiny and Constitutional Affairs was established in 1981. It was reorganized and strengthened in 1993.[2]
