Home / Standards / Controlled Terminology

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.

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.

New requests or changes to existing Terminology can be accessed through the CDISC New Term Request Page.
