ANSI Anti-Trust Policy:  Professional Associations, such as HL7, which bring together competing entities are subject to strict scrutiny under applicable antitrust laws. HL7 recognizes that the antitrust laws were enacted to promote fairness in competition and, as such, supports laws against monopoly and restraints of trade and their enforcement. Each individual participating in HL7 meetings and conferences, regardless of venue, is responsible for knowing the contents of and adhering to the HL7 Antitrust Policy as stated in §05.01 of the Governance and Operations Manual (GOM).

Laboratory INVD publication to reflect it's not LOINC only. (includes sct, other standards)
Currently on LOINC 2.75
Then I wouldn't use nomenclature for versioning that looks like LOINC or it may be very confusing to folks
Hans Buitendijk to Everyone (Aug 22, 2023, 2:12 PM)
Keep in mind that this the LOINC version.
