A metadata registry (MDR) is a centralised repository or system that manages and governs metadata within an organisation or across a community. An MDR manages the semantics of data. Understanding data is fundamental to its design, harmonisation, standardisation, use, re-use, and interchange. The underlying model for an MDR is designed to capture all the basic components of the semantics of data, independent of any application or subject matter area.
