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).

OIDs requirement across HL7 product
Action item for Bryn & RobM: go to TSC... if an external code system doesn't already have an OID assigned, then the HTA would adopt a process to automatically generate the OID as a part of this process and not require external system owners to register and pay for a new OID, as is the process now. The minimal set of metadata will be added to the OID registry to prevent the use of the allocated OID by any other party.
Implication of this would be to consider the future of the OID registry and replication of the information and search capability in the OID registry in the THO. Another Action "in the wings" or implied in this action is cleaning up the OID registry, updating the records to reflect a current source of truth.
at TSC: they would like for Rob to present that information because it's his role. Bryn was not able to initiate discussion with the TSC on this issue.
