Does my organisation need to be formally registered as a maintenance agency to use SDMX ?

No !

Being officially registered as an SDMX maintenance agency in the SDMX Global Registry is not a condition for implementing SDMX.

However being registered allows your organisation to be uniquely identified in the SDMX system.

Applications for registration can be submitted using the following email:
