The National Register of Severe Allergic Reactions to Food at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health was established in spring 2000 in collaboration with the Norwegian Food Safety Authority, their regional offices and the National Veterinary Institute.

Severe cases are defined as reactions that lead to the patient contacting a doctor within 24 hours. Following the case report, a serum sample can be sent to the Register to be checked against a large number of food allergens. Doctors in Norway are encouraged to report serious food allergy reactions to the Register.
