A tool to manage and share reference codes
You would like to exchange data cross-border and cross-sector using reference codes. These can be used in data exchange between applications, making sure that the parties involved understand univocally the key concepts to which the data refer. They can be used to define sets of permissible values for a data field, or to provide a reference or context for the data being exchanged. Examples are enumerations, controlled vocabularies, taxonomies, thesauri or, simply, ‘lists of things’.
You would like to manage and share reference codes.
Re3gistry provides a central access point that allows labels and descriptions for reference codes to be easily looked up by humans, or retrieved by machines. It supports organisations in managing and updating reference codes in a consistent way, so that all versions of a code remain traceable and properly documented, and do not change or disappear over time.
By using reference codes within Re3gistry, you can:
- Avoid common errors such as entering synonyms or spelling mistakes when filling in online forms
- Facilitate the internationalisation of user interfaces by providing multilingual labels
- Ensure semantic interoperability when exchanging data between systems and applications
- Make reference codes gain value when widely re-used and referenced
