Norwegian term or phrase: vedtagelse
vedtagelse av forelegget

An agreed penalty is accepted.

Is there a specific legal term for this Norwegian concept, where the defendant agrees to the penalty and the court affirms it?

Explanation:
Firstly, I think this should be spelt "vedtakelse"

In a legal context, or in the context of a court, you could speak of the fine being 'passed' or 'carried' by the judge.

I used Cappelen's juridisk ordbok as the basis of my answer.

neutral  Charlesp: what does it mean? - to be 'carried' by the judge.

  -> Similar to 'carry' a motion, for example? But looking at the other options below, I can see that I am not correct.

consent decree


Explanation:
This isn't my expertise, but there is a legal term, a specific finding and ruling by the court, where the two parties consent to settle a dispute, such as a plea bargain.
My reference leads to examples of such decrees so you can review their context and see if it matches.
