Once the scope of the reference set and the requirements has been identified, it is essential that an owner of the reference set is clearly identified (this may be an individual or a specific group). Furthermore, the requirements must be clearly documented, particularly the scope, purpose and use case(-s). 

The owners of the reference set must then assess what content to be included in the reference set. This process may involve evaluating existing reference sets, or assessing what parts within the International Release of SNOMED CT (and potentially National and Affiliate Editions) will meet the stated requirements. At this stage the requirements for ensuring the content of the subset is quality assured should also be documented.
