Data Providers are maintained in a Data Provider Scheme.

The Data Provider can be linked to the type of data (Dataflow) or reference metadata (Metadata Flow) that it reports or disseminates. This link provides the data collection system or data dissemination system.
Remark
This concept was also part of the SDMX Metadata Common Vocabulary (MCV), as published in SDMX Content-Oriented Guidelines (COG), annex 4 "Metadata Common Vocabulary", in 2009 (http://www.sdmx.org). In February 2016 the Metadata Common Vocabulary was replaced by the SDMX Glossary 2016.
