Welcome to the Substances Project Space!

This is a landing page to explain what this project is about. Most of the specific information about the group is kept in another Confluence space: Drugs Substance Project - Directory.

The Substances Project has a Working Group (WG), which is a closed group.


The Substances Hierarchy Project aims to deliver a plan to update to substances content and provide a robust concept model for substance representation.


The scope of the project is to

  1. Provide a re-design of Substances hierarchy and document a review of previous SNOMED CT substances work.

  2. Provide a strategy and a project plan for the implementation of the re-designed hierarchy.
  3. Implement the re-designed hierarchy on content.
  4. Write SNOMED CT Editorial Guidelines on the Substances hierarchy.


Phuong Skovgaard and Emma Melhuish


The Working Group meets regularly using this directory: Meeting Information - Substance Hierarchy.

Face to Face

The Working Group will meet during the SNOMED International Business Meeting in London in April 2017. Due to space limitations it will be closed to observers.
