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).

PJ: This is a Canadian resource, and there may not be a role for this content on the THO
Carol: this is a source of truth for this issue, TK: this is not ISO, need to remain aware of where the resource is coming from. Carol: we may need to author a policy statement re: this kind of situation, as this is not the first time this has become an issue. Referencing terminology content that is available elsewhere... likely an HTA task to draft recommendations regarding these situations.
Joan: there are other ISO 3166 references in THO. TK: these are historical artifacts from V2. Licensing to ISO was a barrier to the V2 community

Vocab WG follow-up: Policy Requiring Identification of Stewards for HL7 (Internal) Code Systems
Vocab WG should decide whether THO code systems and value sets should have the steward as mandatory. Would help with knowing who to follow up with in the UTG process.
In Vocab WG - Motion passed: Vocab WG recommends that TSMG implement a rule stating that: Every HL7 code system in THO must have a steward WG. The steward WG has to be one of the WGs that are authorized to propose making changes to an HL7 code system in THO.
RD: Suggesting there may need to be a better description of what a Steward is / what that entails before crafting a policy statement. When there is a proposal for the definition, this issue would be brought back to this group.
