Technically that is true, but Norway follows EEA (European economic
area) agreements and uses CE Marking and ETSI spec for conformance,
same as all the other "EU" countries.

The full list that follow harmonized ETSI conformance standards:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Rep, Denmark, Estonia, Finland,
France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein,
Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal,
Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, U.K.

31 countries
