Here is a briefing note from SNOMED International to inform the Community of Practice of the intention to inactivate the Navigational concept hierarchy (<<363743006 |Navigational concept (navigational concept)|) which consists of 634 concepts that have been placed in this hierarchy due to their inability to be defined or to present a universally understood meaning, thus violating the Understandability, Reproducibility, and Useability standards for SNOMED CT.

Please see the attached briefing note for further details.

Comments on this plan should be provided via this forum.
