Norske Finansielle Referanser AS (NoRe) is established and owned by Finance Norway with the purpose to administer financial benchmarks. NoRe has approval from the Norwegian Ministry of Finance to act as administrator for Nibor (derived from Norwegian Interbank Offered Rate).
Norway is not a member of the European Union, but part of the European Economic Area (EEA), governed by the EEA Agreement. The EU Benchmarks Regulation (BMR) is relevant to the EEA and was implemented in Norwegian legislation 6 December 2019. NoRe applied for authorization as administrator for Nibor according to BMR on 12 December 2019. NoRe was included in the list of pending applications published by ESMA - The European Securities and Markets Authority - on 13 December 2019 and may therefore be used as benchmark in the EU also after 1 January 2020.
