Retrieving interest rates and exchange rates via REST API - beta version

The Riksbank is developing a new REST API (Application Programming Interface) with the aim of making it easier for users to integrate their systems to automatically retrieve interest rates and exchange rates from the Riksbank's website. A beta version of this REST API is now available.

Beta version

The beta version was released on 29 March 2023. The Riksbank plans to switch to the REST API during the last quarter of 2023. The old SOAP API will then be phased out after a transition period of approximately 3 months. More detailed information on the time schedule will be communicated on the website in the future.

Using the beta version

The API can be used free of charge, but the number of calls that can be made during a period of time from a given IP address is limited. If you need to make more calls, it is also possible to register as a user in the Riksbank's API portal.

Frequently asked questions about the new API and the beta period.

Use of the old SOAP API

We recommend existing consumers of our SOAP API to plan for a migration to the new API as soon as the beta period is over. This is because the old SOAP API will be de-published after a transition period.

The API portal 

Technical documentation for developers, information on published APIs and the possibility of registering users can be found in the Riksbank's API portal. The portal also contains information on how the Riksbank processes your personal data when using the API.
