Statistical data and metadata exchange, SDMX
Term extension
Statistical concept; Peer reviews
Set of technical standards and content-oriented guidelines, together with an IT architecture and tools, to be used for the efficient exchange and sharing of statistical data and metadata.
Seven organisations (Bank of International Settlements, European Central Bank, Eurostat, International Monetary Fund, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, United Nations Statistical Division and World Bank) act as sponsors of SDMX.

The first version of the SDMX technical standard (1.0, finalised in 2004) has been approved as an ISO standard (ISO/TS 17369:2005). SDMX V2.0 was also approved by the sponsors in 2005.

Public consultations on the content-oriented guidelines were conducted in 2006 and in 2008, with the aim of compiling guidelines on cross-domain concepts and code-lists, statistical subject-matter domains and the metadata common vocabulary. The first set of content-oriented guidelines was finalised at the end of 2008 to be published in January 2009.
