b) describe representation of concepts and characteristics, for use especially in formal computer-based concept representation systems,

c) describe the characteristics which synthetically describe the organisation and content of a terminological system in health,

d) support the development of specific standards on categorial structures for particular healthcare subject fields with the minimum requirements to support meaningful exchange of information.

This document is not suitable for, or intended for use, by individual clinicians or hospital administrators. It is not the purpose of this document to standardize the end user classification or to conflict with the concept systems embedded in national practice and languages.
