Dear all,  

The Production release of the April 2023 SNOMED CT® Spanish Edition is now available to everyone from the MLDS distribution site.  This release contains the Spanish language version of the January 2023 SNOMED CT® International Edition. 

All files distributed for the April 2023 SNOMED CT® Spanish Edition are available from the “April 2023 v1.0” version in the “SNOMED CT Spanish package - Edición en Español” project, which can be found on the “SNOMED Releases” page in MLDS, accessed here: 

The SNOMED CT® Spanish Edition Production 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 viewed online on SNOMED International’s Release Management Confluence website:

The Release Notes have also been published as a .pdf file alongside the release package, in the same MLDS repository. 



  A proposal is being reviewed to improve the delivery schedule of the Spanish Edition, by bringing the Spanish Releases closer into alignment with each of the relevant International Edition releases.  This would involve the removal of the BETA feedback period from the Spanish Release schedule from the October 2023 cycle onwards, allowing us to publish the Spanish Edition a month earlier, on 31st March and 30th September each year.  This should have no impact on the quality of the final content, as we have not received any feedback on the Spanish BETA releases for several cycles.  If you have any strong objections to this proposal, however, please email us at

If you have any questions about the April 2023 SNOMED CT® Spanish Edition Production release, or have difficulties downloading the files, please contact SNOMED International at with “April 2023 Spanish Edition Production release” in the subject line.

Kind regards,
Andrew Atkinson  |  Release Manager
