The WHO-FIC Update and Revision Committee
The Update and Revision Committee (URC) assesses the need for updating the ICD and develops detailed proposals for annual meetings. It fosters reference groups for specific areas of interest and addresses issues brought forward by reference groups, The Committee may identify where major revision is required and how such a revision could be undertaken. Once a revision is approved by the Network, the Committee may undertake or direct the revision work.
The URC includes a Mortality Reference Group to address the need to clarify mortality coding rules and to recommend new rules and codes to meet the needs of mortality statistics.
