Definition
Practice of giving certain individuals or organisations access to data under embargo before those data are released to the public.
Context
This entails the transparent recording of persons or officials holding designated positions within the government, but outside the statistical system producing the data, who have pre-release access to the data and the reporting of the schedule according to which they receive access. Also called "internal access" in the Data Quality Assessment Framework of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Remark
This concept was 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.
