CDISC, in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute's Enterprise Vocabulary Services (EVS), supports the Controlled Terminology needs of CDISC Foundational and Therapeutic Area Standards.
Controlled Terminology is the set of codelists and valid values used with data items within CDISC-defined datasets. Controlled Terminology provides the values required for submission to FDA and PMDA in CDISC-compliant datasets. Controlled Terminology does not tell you WHAT to collect; it tells you IF you collected a particular data item, how you should submit it in your electronic dataset.
New requests or changes to existing Terminology can be accessed through the CDISC New Term Request Page.

For SDTM Terminology publication on 2023-03-31, an Excel formatting issue caused unintended changes to a small subset of CDISC submission values that contain numbers across the following codelists: C182487, C189266, C160924, and C160923. The other file formats (.txt, .html, .pdf, .odm-XML, and .OWL/RDF) were not affected. NCI-EVS has re-issued the affected file (SDTM Terminology.xls, version 2023-03-31) on the NCI Ftp on 2023-04-04. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
