The registry supports a common understanding of the data these organisations hold, how and why it was collected, and how it is defined, produced, and used.

Documenting and managing metadata minimises data-related risks, supports compliance with legislation and policies, increases opportunities to use and improve the quality and design of data assets, and encourages safe and ethical data use, research and innovation to improve customer experience.

Metadata is documented in accordance with information management legislation, policies and standards.

Note: The registry contains information about data, including how to request access to data. It does not itself contain any data.
