This is achieved through the provision of following components: European Directory of Registries (ERDRI.dor), Central Metadata Repository (ERDRI.mdr), Pseudonymisation Tool (ERDRI.spider), Search broker (ERDRI.sebro).

ERDRI.mdr ensures semantic interoperability between RD registries. It stores all data elements (metadata) used by the participating registries, including the names of the data elements (designations) and their definitions.
Within ERDRI.mdr metadata items from any registry can be either uploaded automatically or inserted manually.
In case of establishing a new registry or amending an existing registry, a user can select from the metadata contained in ERDRI.mdr.
