The Nordic Product Registers has since 2003 been working on harmonizing the reporting process for companies in the Nordic countries. The objective of this report is to clarify the technical solution needed to accommodate the harmonization. This report describes a software model for implementing a joint reporting tool for the Nordic Product Registers. There exist various methods for implementing a solution to afford this, but the conclusion in this report is that a new client based on the fat-client paradigm should be developed. The report also contains cost estimates for the development and proposes two development plans for implementation.

Background

Since the Stockholm Conference in 1972, the international community has actively tried to negotiate effective solutions for dealing with global environmental threats. As no one could have predicted the magnitude of environmental problems that would arise before the 21st century, global environmental solutions have been considered in isolation (Kanie 2007; Chambers 2008). This has resulted in highly fragmented international environmental governance (IEG), which is especially obvious in the case of MEAs. Today, more than 500 MEAs are registered with the United Nations (Knigge et al. 2005; Najam et al. 2006).
