The Conference of European Statisticians Steering Group on Statistical Metadata (usually abbreviated to "METIS Steering Group") is responsible for developing and maintaining the Common Metadata Framework, as well as organising METIS Work Sessions and Workshops.  From time to time it convenes informal task forces to work on specific issues, such as the current task force on Metadata flows within the GSBPM and the task force on revision of the Neuchâtel terminology model.
