Dear all, 

The Production release of the November 2022 SNOMED CT® Global Patient Set (GPS) RF2 refset package is now available, from the MLDS distribution site.

All files distributed are available from the  "November 2022 v1.0" version in the "SNOMED CT Global Patient Set (GPS) RF2 Refset package - SNOMED International" project, which can be found on the "SNOMED Releases" page in MLDS, accessed here: 

https://mlds.ihtsdotools.org/#/ihtsdoReleases

The SNOMED CT® Global Patient Set (GPS) refset package contains SNOMED CT files in Release Format 2 (RF2) only, distributed in a zipped file archive:

  • SnomedCT_GPS_PRODUCTION_20221130T120000Z.zip


This package is provided in Release Format 2 (RF2) format only.   For the Freeset format of the same GPS Refset, please see https://gps.snomed.org/

In line with the new SNOMED International packaging guidelines, the Release Notes and Implementation Guide have been separated from the release package, and so can be downloaded as distinct files from the same MLDS release version:

  • doc_SnomedINTL-GlobalPatientSet-ReleaseNotes_Current_en-US_INT_20220731.pdf
  • doc_SnomedINTL-GlobalPatientSet-ImplementationGuide_Current_en-US_INT_20220731.pdf

The Documentation can also be accessed online:


Those Members using MLDS as their distribution site will find that their affiliates have access to the new release automatically.
