RSS-CB (RSS for central banks) is an extension of RSS feeds, a standard website mechanism that news sites use to inform their readers about latest news items. "Plain vanilla" RSS is oriented for human users and simple syndication. RSS-CB does this and in addition is oriented for machine and application users that need structured information to, for example, filter selected research content for intranets or to pull in monetary policy announcements from key markets.
