SNOMED International Governance and Advisory Committees
SNOMED International is comprised of a General Assembly, Management Board, Member Forum, Advisory Groups and Special Interest Groups. Clinical groups and project groups are also formed when needed.
Each Member country can nominate standing members to represent their country at each of these groups. We encourage Australian users to take part in the various SNOMED International Advisory Groups.
