A reference set member that is no longer intended for current use. 


  • Release files contain active and inactive reference set members to provide a historical record of the content of the terminology at different points in time.

  • A reference set member is inactive when the most recent row with the id in the full release file has the value reference set = 0 (zero). The most recent row for a reference set member is determined based on the effectiveTime value.
  • Terms derived from inactive reference set members may still be present in past records but should no longer be returned by searches or user interface tools used to enter information into current records.
