Belgien - zugelassene Organisationen (Art. 13)

La Belgique est un Etat fédéral. Ce sont les communautés (communauté française, communauté flamande et communauté germanophone) qui sont compétentes pour agréer les organismes pouvant intervenir comme intermédiaire dans une adoption.

Jusqu'à ce jour, aucun service n'a encore été agréé par la Communauté germanophone. Les adoptions réalisées dans cette communauté se pratiquent dès lors dans le cadre d'un accord de coopération via les services d'adoption agréés de la communauté française.

La liste est subdivisée sur base de leur agrément par les Communautés compétentes.

Regional Offices:

(The effective date of the above information is 1 July 2004)

Norway - staatliche Stellen (Art. 22.1)

Subordinate to the Directorate, there are five regional offices, to which some procedural functions have been delegated in accordance with paragraph 1 of Article 22. In most cases, applications for adoption shall now be made to the competent regional office, which is authorised to grant preliminary approval for the adoption of a child resident in another state. The Directorate is the appellate instance. If, in an exceptional case, an adoption is to be arranged without the services of an accredited adoption agency, the Directorate itself (the Central Authority) will still grant the preliminary approval in the first instance. The Ministry of Children and Family Affairs is then the appellate instance.

The regional offices and their addresses are:
- Regional Office for Children, Youth and Family Affairs, Southern Norway
  (Barne-, ungdoms- og familieetaten, region sør)
  P.O. Box 2403, 3104 Tønsberg, Norway
