Abstract: The Tenth Revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-10) checklists are a set of semistructured instruments designed for clinician assessment of mental and behavioral disorders according to ICD-10 criteria. The checklists have been produced as a package consisting of the ICD-10 Symptom Checklist and Glossary and the International Diagnostic Checklists (IDCL) for ICD-10 and Manual. This report describes the main features of the newly released World Health Organization (WHO) instruments and specifies areas of possible application by clinicians.
