Authority tables 

In order to harmonise and standardise the codes and the associated labels used in the Publications Office and for inter-institutional data exchange (i.e.: between the institutions involved in the legal decision-making process gathered in the Interinstitutional Metadata Maintenance Committee [IMMC]), a number of Named Authority Lists (NALs) have been defined. These NALs are also known as (Common) Authority Tables (CATs), controlled vocabularies or value lists.

The following NALs are maintained in the Metadata Registry:


The released authority tables are available on EU Open Data Portal as datasets.
