Changes in the guidelines for pledging collateral for loans from Norges Bank
The guidelines for pledging collateral for loans from Norges Bank have been changed in line with the press release of 1 February 2021.
Updated guidelines can be found in Circular 4/2021. Thus, the temporary changes to the guidelines that were published 18 March 2020 have now been reversed. Securities in NOK with a guarantee from a Norwegian local government authority will continue to be exempt from the credit rating requirement.
