Dear Members,  

The Beta release of the October 2017 SNOMED CT® Spanish Edition is now available to SNOMED International Members only, from the MLDS distribution site.  This release contains the Spanish language version of the July 2017 SNOMED CT® International Edition. 

This Beta release provides SNOMED International Member organisations an opportunity to perform a technical evaluation of the SNOMED CT® files, and to provide feedback to SNOMED International, before the Production Spanish Edition is published by 31st October 2017.  Please note that this Release should not be distributed to Affiliate Licensees or any third parties before this date.   

The Beta release is distributed for evaluation purposes only.  It is not for use in production clinical systems or in clinical settings. 


When providing feedback, please include as much detail as possible, incorporating references to, or samples of, specific instances of the issue being reported.  The absence of sufficient information to allow SNOMED International to confirm the reported issue may result in no action being taken prior to the Production release.  Feedback on content related issues will be assessed and prioritised by SNOMED International, and a decision will be made as to whether to address any reported content issues for this release or as part of a future Spanish Edition release.  Although all feedback will be carefully reviewed, there should be no expectation that any non-technical issues will be addressed prior to the distribution of the Production release.  

Feedback on the Beta release files will be accepted until 23:59 UTC on 19th October 2017 – although Members are urged to submit their findings as early as possible.

All files distributed to SNOMED International Members for the October 2017 Spanish Edition Beta release are available from the "October 2017 v0.1” version in the “Offline & Alpha/Beta Versions” section of the “SNOMED CT Spanish package - Edición en Español” project, which can be found on the “SNOMED International Releases” page in MLDS, accessed here:

The SNOMED CT® Spanish Edition Beta release is distributed as a single zipped file archive:      

The Release Notes and Starter Guide have been separated from the Spanish Edition package, and can be reviewed online here, on SNOMED International’s Release Management Confluence website:

The Release Notes will also be published as a .pdf file alongside each release, in the same MLDS repository. 

If you have any questions about the October 2017 Spanish Edition Beta release, or have difficulties downloading the files, please contact SNOMED International at with “October 2017 Spanish Edition Beta release” in the subject line.   


Kind regards, 

Andrew Atkinson  |  Release Manager
