Current Version - Under Revision

The process of importing an Extension is similar to importing the main distribution files. However, some additional functionality is required to ensure appropriate installation, maintenance and use of Extensions .

Applications should:

  • Allow the users or user communities to specify the Extensions to be recognized by their systems. Before recognizing any Extension, users should check that:
    • The Extension has been supplied by the IHTSDO or another organization authorized by the IHTSDO to provide such Extensions .
    • You are satisfied with the quality control procedures of the providing organization:
      • Authorization of an organization to produce Extensions does not imply any seal of approval related to the quality of Extensions provided by those organizations ;
      • Installation of Extensions is done entirely at the risk of the user subject to their license agreement with the provider of the Extension and/or the application developer.
