Until July 2018, ISMN publisher identifiers have been allocated to about 95 music publishers. The scores are registered in the on-line database of the National Bibliography of Printed music, available at http://www.nb.no.

A directory of the Norwegian music publishers using ISMNs is available on the agency's website as well as an online version of the ISMN User's Manual in Norwegian.
