National editions are published by a number of SNOMED International Members to customize the SNOMED CT International Edition to a specific country or territory.  Table 4.4.1-1 lists some examples of Members who have published national editions of SNOMED CT. Please note that the International Edition is translated into Spanish. However, this translation is performed by SNOMED International, and is therefore not distributed as a national edition.

Table 4.4.1-2  lists some examples of published SNOMED CT editions and their included modules, as specified in the Module Dependency Reference Set. Please note that a number of Members publish more than one edition. For example, in the UK both a  national edition and clinical edition are published.

US Edition

Figure 4.4.1-1  shows the four modules contained in the 20170901 US Edition, together with their module dependencies. Two of the modules are from the 20170901 US Extension, and the other two are from the 20170731 International Edition. Please note that the module dependencies (shown as grey arrows) are date specific, so each versioned source module is dependent on a versioned target module. The module names in this diagram have been shortened for brevity.

Ref Notes
1 Note that although the | SNOMED CT to ICD-10 rule-based mapping module| is included in the International Edition release package, it is not considered part of the formal International Edition and extensions are not required to reference this module.
2 Note that the UK Clinical Edition contains the International Release and the UK SNOMED CT Clinical Extension of SNOMED CT only (not the UK Drug Extension).
