SNOMED International Criteria for Accepting Content Requests
As a significant focus of the organisation's mandate, SNOMED International is taking this opportunity to reaffirm the criteria for accepting terminology content as it applies to our members and collaborative partners. In the subsequently linked letter, the organisation has provided additional acceptance criteria guidelines, as well as minimum acceptability for Content Request Service (CRS) changes.
As a necessary element of making SNOMED International a more efficient and responsive organisation committed to managing finite resources, it is in the interest of all parties to strive to submit quality content. These efforts minimize the time and resources needed by SNOMED International staff in correcting content before its timely progression to the International Release cycle. This is essential as the organisation is forecasting to operate within a flat budget for the 2018 year.
