  21. Data Collection or Production Centres (DCPC) • Centres that fulfill within specific WMO Programmes an international responsibility for the generation and provision for international distribution of data, forecast products, processed or value-added information, and/or for providing archiving services, are referred to as Data Collection or Production Centres.  DCPCs can also provide basic WIS functions such as metadata catalogues, Internet portals and data access management.  Examples of DCPCs are the Regional Specialised Meteorological Centres (RSMC) with activity specialisation or geographic specialisation, as well as the Regional Climate Centres. DCPC roles can be summarised as follows:   • Collect information intended for dissemination to NCs within its area of responsibility (i.e. regional collections) • Collect special programme-related data and products;

  22. Data Collection or Production Centres (DCPC) • Produce regional or specialised data and products; • Provide information intended for global exchange to their responsible GISC; • Disseminate information not intended for global exchange; • Support access to their products via WMO request/reply (”Pull”) mechanisms in an appropriate manner; • Describe their products according to an agreed WMO standard and provide access to this catalogue of products and provide this information as appropriate to other centres, in particular a GISC; • Ensure that they have procedures and arrangements in place to provide swift recovery or backup of their essential services in the event of an outage (due to, for example, fire or a natural disaster); • Participate in monitoring the performance of the system.
