Comments
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs can legalise export documents issued by a Danish authority, e.g. certificates issued by the Food Administration, The Plant Directorate, The Danish Medicines Agency and other government agencies or documents attested by an authorised translator, the Danish Chamber of Commerce or a Notary Public.
Special regulations apply for the legalisation of export documents. Certain documents shall be legalised by a Danish authority before legalisation by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, other documents can be legalised directly by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Certain documents shall be legalised with a general stamp, other documents should preferably be legalised with an Apostille.
Documents from the Danish Medicines Agency, The Danish Patent and Trademark Office, the Danish Tax and Customs Administration or other government agency must be signed.
Export documents issued by a private company shall be legalised by a Chamber of Commerce before they can be legalised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Norway
Comments
The legalisation or confirmation of a signature on a document of a Norwegian public official (official or other authorised person), that the person concerned has the position indicated on the document and is thus entitled to issue such a document. The document should bear the official stamp of the institute. A text stamp is not accepted. Legalisation does not mean a confirmation of the correctness of the content of the document.
The normal legalisation process is as follows: the document is confirmed by a Notary Public (i.e. the “Byfogdembete” or the District Court), thereafter by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and finally by the particular country’s Embassy accredited to Norway. 

The Hague-convention
For those countries which have adopted the Hague-convention, the document shall be presented to the County Governor who confirms that the Notary Public is appointed for the county when affixing the Apostille. This stamp confirms who has signed the document, the position which the person has and which institute has applied the official stamp. The Embassy stage is not required in this case. 

For further information please contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Consulate section, tel. 22 24 38 45. The Consulate Section is open for legalisation, Monday- Friday from 10.00 am to 12.00 noon and from 13.00 pm to 14.30 pm.

Comments
As to States other than those Parties to the Hague Apostille Convention, the legalisation procedure of documents has three stages in Finland. 
1) The notary public certifies the document or the signature. The original document issued by a state authority can be signed by its official. 2) The Ministry for Foreign Affairs (Consular Services/Legalisations) certifies the signature of the notary public or an official.  3) The Embassy of the State in question certifies the legalisation certification issued by the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs. 
Payment can be made using a bank card or a credit card (not in cash) or pay it in advance into the ministry’s bank account.

Fees
EUR 20 / certification. 

Processing time (working days)
Legalization processed immediately if  less than six (6) documents are submitted.
If more than six (6) documents are submitted, processing time is 1-3 working days.
