Secure electronic exchange of data with Statistics Norway via fx.ssb.no
1. Creating a user (this is only done once)
In order to get started, you need to receive an e-mail from Statistics Norway with a link to the portal. Using the link in the e-mail, register a username and create a password. You will need these to log in later.
The e-mail looks like this:
Click on the link. This will take you to the following window:
Use the e-mail address as the username and click on Request Password. You will then receive a new e-mail.
Click on the link in this e-mail.
A page will then appear where you create your own password by clicking on Set Password – remember to keep your password for use in subsequent log-ins. Statistics Norway does not have access to this password. Note that this is the password you will always use to access your account. When you receive files, Statistics Norway also texts you a one-time password, which you need to open the relevant file(s). This one-time password is NOT the one you will use to access your account.
You have now registered as a user at fx.ssb.no and can securely exchange files with Statistics Norway.
