The CDISC Terminology Teams support the terminology needs of the CDISC Foundational Standards teams (Protocol, SDTM, CDASH, ADaM, SEND, Defie-XML and Glossary) and Therapeutic Area Standards Development Teams. The terminology teams evaluate all new term requests received through the new term request webpage (, incorporating as much as possible for each quarterly release. All CDISC terminology is vetted through a four week public review period at the end of each quarter. CDISC controlled terminology is published four times per year, also at the end of each quarter. The terminology publication schedule can be found here:

All approved controlled terminology is stored on the NCI-EVS Ftp site here: Additional controlled terminology products can be accessed via the CDISC website here: and here:

CDISC controlled terminology is developed by teams composed of volunteers, using defined principles and best practices. If you are interested in volunteering on any of these terminology teams, please contact Loreen Ortega ( Here is a list of active terminology teams and their meeting schedule:
