The IFLA Metadata Technical Standards Review Group coordinates and supports the publishing of IFLA Metadata Standards, including the instructions, examples and linked data aspects, in the IFLA Namespaces, and supports the activities of other IFLA Review Groups by publishing the metadata standards, providing the technical support infrastructure, producing documentation and guidance, providing training and other support as needed.

As of May 2024, the Metadata Technical Standards (METATEC) Review Group replaces the IFLA Linked Data Technical (LIDATEC) Review Group.

METATEC reports directly to the Advisory Committee on Standards and is considered a sub-committee of that committee.
