The Master Value Sets Catalogue (MVC) to be used by deploying countries in the CEF eHDSI services is the evolution of the MVC developed in previous projects (epSOS and EXPAND). It is a collection of terms, used within certain parts of the eHDSI pivot documents (either parts describing the patient demographics or the clinical problems, for example), based on standardised code systems such as ICD-10, SNOMED CT, ATC Classification, EDQM Standard Terms, or UCUM.

Important Notice

When accessing the MVC, please be aware of the different Licensing, Conditions and Terms of use of all the code systems on which it is based.
