The HL7 Netherlands Branch OID (Vocabularies and Identification Schemes used within HL7 messages used in the Healthcare sector in the Netherlands)
OID registration and assignment requests may be directed
to the secretariat of HL7 Netherlands if the requester is a member of
HL7 in the Netherlands or a member of HL7 (International) residing in the Netherlands.
HL7 the Netherlands shall only assign OIDs under its own Branch OID. OIDs will be registered by HL7 Netherlands where:
There is a known existing OID (which may have been assigned by HL7 Netherlands as a direct result of the registration/assignment request, or may have been assigned by some other assigning authority).
There is no known existing OID within the HL7 (International) or HL7 Netherlands OID registry that identifies the same scheme as identified by the OID in the registration request.
There is a requirement for the OID to be used in HL7 artefacts within the Netherlands, i.e., the coding/identification scheme identified by the OID is specific to the Netherlands.
OID requests will be forwarded to HL7 (International) for registration should, in the opinion of HL7 Netherlands, the scheme be useful outside of the Netherlands.
All OID requests (for registration with HL7 Netherlands or HL7 International) should use the OID request form as found on the HL7 Netherlands website.
The process of registration/assignment of a scheme and the corresponding OID does not constitute an endorsement by HL7 Netherlands for the registered scheme. The process is therefore not subject to a vote of the HL7 Netherlands membership. The process (out-of-scope of this document) of determining what schemes should be used in HL7 artefacts in the Netherlands is subject to a vote of the membership.
