Open data – information available for re-use
The Act on the re-use of public administration documents (2010:566) aims to promote the development of an information market by facilitating individuals’ use of documents provided by authorities.
The Act contains provisions on conditions for the re-use of documents held by authorities. Re-use refers to the use of documents for purposes other than those for which they were originally intended.
The Act has no bearing on the principle of public access to official documents.
According to the Act, authorities must publish a list of the types of documents that can usually be provided electronically for re-use, along with related information (section 11). There follows a description of documents held at the Riksbank and a description of the conditions for documents to be submitted for re-use.
Documents available for re-use
The archive inventory provides an overview of the Riksbank and the documents in the Riksbank’s archive.
You can find information about the Riksbank’s archives here: https://www.riksbank.se/en-gb/about-the-riksbank/history/the-riksbank-archives/
The release of documents in the archive for re-use must take place in accordance with the applicable data protection rules. In some cases, the documents may be confidential. Release for re-use therefore requires each document to undergo assessment each time it is released.
The Riksbank’s diary contains information about a variety of matters and public documents registered in the authority’s diary. Extracts from the Riksbank’s diary are published every working day on the Riksbank’s website.
