Proposed Draft Revisions to DSM Disorders and Criteria are published here on the APA’s relaunched DSM5.org website
Selected material for proposed revision of “Somatoform Disorders”
1] The APA appears to be adopting the use of “DSM-5” rather than “DSM-V” for the next edition of its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual.
2] CSSD in the text below is an acronym for “Complex Somatic Symptom Disorder”. Do not confuse this with “CISSD Project” (Conceptual Issues in Somatoform and Similar Disorders Project), an unofficial project undertaken between 2003 and 2007, initiated and co-ordinated by Dr Richard Sykes, PhD, former Director of Westcare UK; Principal Administrators, Action for M.E. Four members of the CISSD Project workgroup, Michael Sharpe, Arthur Barsky, Francis Creed and James Levenson have served on the DSM-5 Somatic Symptoms Disorders Work Group since 2007. A fifth member, Javier Escobar, is a member of the DSM-5 Task Force, the DSM-5 Psychiatric/General Medical Interface Study Group and serves as Task Force liaison to the DSM-5 SSD Work Group.
3] I have published selected material from the APA’s new webpages below, for the proposed revisions to the DSM-IV categories currently classified under “Somatoform Disorders”. There are also some associated PDFs which will need to be referred to.
There is a degree of correspondence between the current “Somatoform Disorders” section in DSM-IV and the equivalent section in ICD-10: Chapter V. The table below sets out how DSM-IV and ICD-10 currently correspond for their respective Somatoform Disorders classifications.
Note that Chronic fatigue syndrome is not categorized in DSM-IV and neither is Neurasthenia (ICD-10: Chapter V at F48.0) http://www.psychnet-uk.com/dsm_iv/dsm_iv_index.htm

We have no information on how closely the ICD Topic Advisory Group for the revision of Chapter V: Mental and Behavioural Disorders (TAG MH) is collaborating with the DSM-5 Somatic Symptom Disorders Work Group over the revisions of their respective “Somatoform Disorders” sections.
Until the iCAT platform is launched and the ICD-11 Alpha Draft published (ETA May 2010), it is not apparent what changes TAG MH might be proposing for the structure, content and classifications of its corresponding Chapter V: F45 – F48 codes, or to what extent ICD Revision intends that any changes to its own “Somatoform Disorders” codings will mirror Task Force proposals for DSM-5 – if the DSM-5 Task Force were to approve radical changes.
4] The public comment period runs from 10 February to 20 April and an online registration process is required. This comment period will be followed by field trials and beta draft. The current publication date for DSM-5 is May 2013.
