Metadata, data about other digital objects, play an important role in FAIR with a direct relation to all FAIR principles. In this paper we present and discuss the FAIR Data Point (FDP), a software architecture aiming to define a common approach to publish semantically-rich and machine-actionable metadata according to the FAIR principles. We present the core components and features of the FDP, its approach to metadata provision, the criteria to evaluate whether an application adheres to the FDP specifications and the service to register, index and allow users to search for metadata content of available FDPs.
