The International Working Group for Mapping and Coding of Nomenclatures for Paediatric and Congenital Heart Disease, also known as the Nomenclature Working Group (NWG).  The task of the NWG is to maintain, preserve and update the International Paediatric and Congenital Cardiac Code (IPCCC).


The International Working Group for Defining the Nomenclatures for Paediatric and Congenital Heart Disease, also known as the Definitions Working Group (DWG).  The purpose of the DWG is to create definitions for the terms in the IPCCC, building on the previously published definitions from the NWG
