This Release status applies to a collection of SNOMED CT release files that represent the final, formally endorsed release of additions of components and/or derivatives to the SNOMED CT International Release or to other products in the SNOMED International Service Catalog.
The Production status indicates the releasing party (SNOMED International or the owner of the Extension) commits to maintain the release history of this release and all subsequent updates. Thus from the first Production release onwards, the historical audit trail will be maintained throughout the Product’s lifetime.
- The significance of the Production status is that it represents the authoritative release of the product, and implementers can use the additional components and derivatives in operational clinical systems with confidence in the subsequent maintenance of the product.
