New guide in development
Namespace-identifiers are allocated by the SNOMED International to licensed organizations. The SNOMED International is under no obligation to allocate a namespace to any organization and makes these allocations at its discretion.
Allocation of a namespace does not imply any endorsement of the reputation of an organization nor to the quality or fitness for purpose of any Extensions created by that organization. Users and/or vendors incorporating Extensions into their application do so at their own risk and should satisfy themselves with the reputation of the responsible organization and the quality the Extensions so incorporated.
