The Euro SDMX registry is a metadata registry which implements the SDMX registry specifications. It provides a web-based user interface as well as web services for interacting with the SDMX structural metadata objects in use within Eurostat and with statistical partners. It will enable National Statistics Institutes and other external organisations to obtain Data Structure Definitions (DSD) and other structural metadata, such as the Metadata Structure Definitions (MSD) for the Euro SDMX Metadata Structure (ESMS).


The SDMX Registry application is intended to be used for the maintenance of
  • Code Lists
  • Concepts Schemes
  • SDMX 2.0 Data Structure Definitions (Key Families)
  • Category Schemes
  • Organization Schemes
  • Metadata Structure Definitions (MSD)
  • Data Flows
  • Metadata Flows
  • Provision Agreements
  • Hierarchical Code Lists
  • Subscriptions
  • Annotations
  • Constraints
SDMX registry is one of the set of SDMX tools developed to support exchange and sharing of statistical data and metadata among partner organisations. SDMX (Statistical Data and Metadata eXchange) provides not only IT architecture & tools for data/metadata exchange but also content guidelines and standard formats of data and metadata.   It provides a web based user interface for the maintenance of these objects and also a mechanism for importing and exporting SDMX-ML 2.0 Data Structure Definition (Key Family) structures. More information can be found on the Eurostat's SDMX Info Space: SDMX Registry.
