In this paper we will give an overview of the CENEX project and concentrate on the current state of affairs with respect to the ARGUS-software twins. The CENEX (Centre of Excellence) is a new initiative by Eurostat. The main idea behind the CENEX-concept is to join the forces of the national NSI’s and together bring the skills of the NSI’s on a higher level. The CENEX on Statistical Disclosure Control is a first pilot CENEX-project both aiming at testing the feasibility of the CENEX idea and working on SDC. This project will make a start of writing a handbook on SDC, after an inventory and extend the ARGUS software with an emphasis on issues of practical use. Within this CENEX we will organise the transfer of technology via courses, a WEB-site and this conference. Finally a roadmap for future work will hopefully lead to a follow-up CENEX.
In this paper we will summarise this CENEX-project and give a short overview of the current versions of ARGUS.
