SNOMED CT Namespace Identifier

As an affiliate Licence holder of SNOMED CT, you have the right to apply for a Namespace Identifier through SNOMED International. The Namespace Identifier will enable you to extend terminology that is compliant with applicable standards.

The NCTS provides a Namespace Identifier request facility where we log the request for you with SNOMED International. Before proceeding with a Namespace Identifier Request, please ensure you visit the Namespace Identifier Registry to confirm that your organisation does not already hold a namespace for use in Australia.

To request the creation of a SNOMED CT Namespace Identifier, please email the Help Centre, and request a copy of the SNOMED International Namespace Information Form. Once you have received this form and submitted the request details, a member of the Agency Help Centre will initiate your request with SNOMED International.
