API for open data

Norges Bank's API for open data offers programmatic access to selected datasets published by the bank.

The available dataflows are exchange rates and interest rates (policy rate, Nowa and Norwegian government securities).

The service is implemented as a REST interface for querying data and metadata and offers a variety of formats for the retrieved data.
