This paper aims at presenting the documentation of European Official Statistics Microdata thanks to the CIMES software, recently developed under the Work Package 5 of the EU-funded FP7 project DwB (Data without Boundaries). In particular, we will give an insight into the challenges that had to be overcome when processing this documentation and using DDI. First, we will describe the metadata schema and the database model which will allow importing and exporting in DDI2-C and in DDI3-L. Then, we will present the web-based tool CIMES, developed to document the existing data on the basis of both this schema and model. Finally, we will give an overview of the current state of play and expected achievements of the documentation work carried out under DwB.
