UTG/THO Versioning PolicyThe Code System versioning policy was approved by the Vocab WG in mid-2020, but progress stalled on completing versioning policies for other THO artifacts.N/AVocab WG07/2020Documented Execution of UTG Versioning

The Code System versioning policy was approved by Vocab prior to the existence of TSMG. 

Needs to be determined if Vocab is responsible for completing the versioning policies for other THO artifacts, such as Value Sets and Naming Systems

UTG Sponsor Requirement PolicyAs an interim measure pending TSMG establishing policies on stewards, in order for a UTG change request to be submitted, there must be one or more sponsors documented in the ticket for that change request. Additionally there needs to be a link to the minutes of one or more of the sponsors, documenting the approval of the change request. One of the change request sponsors must be an HL7 WG or the TSMG.N/ATSMG2/9/20222022-02-09 TSMG Agenda and Minutes
