Guidelines for Confidentiality and Embargo in SDMX, published on 20 November 2015 The "Guidelines for Confidentiality and Embargo in SDMX" cover the confidentiality aspects in SDMX data exchange, including embargo scenarios. The aim is to provide a consistent and practical way to represent these aspects in SDMX artefacts in order to promote cross-domain consistency and harmonise methodology and processes. The paper presents the use case scenarios related to confidentiality and embargo. Based on the use cases, recommendations are provided on how to represent both elements in the SDMX model. >>
Guidelines on the Versioning of SDMX Artefacts, published on 20 November 2015 The “Guidelines on the Versioning of SDMX Artefacts” provide recommendations on how to version SDMX artefacts inspired by “semantic versioning”, i.e. a formal convention for specifying compatibility between the different versions of a “versionable” artefact (a SDMX artefact that has an associated version number). Versioning is central to SDMX because it guarantees the stability of references to SDMX artefacts.
Public review of Guidelines for the Versioning of SDMX artefacts, published on 26 October 2015 The SDMX Statistical Working Group (SWG) submits the guidelines on the versioning of SDMX artefacts for public review. The review period extends until 19th November 2015. Feedback is welcome. >>
