At the tenth International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems Conference, the World Health Organization (WHO) Heads of Collaborating Centres recommended that there should be no revision of the International Classification of Procedures in Medicine (ICPM) in conjunction with the Tenth Revision of the ICD, due to the rapid advancement in the field of procedures. Consequently, the WHO ICD-10 is a disease classification without an accompanying WHO intervention classification. In 2006 the WHO- Family of Classifications Network (WHO-FIC) revisited the need for an intervention classification and has initiated a work program to develop the International Classification of Health Interventions (ICHI).
