The interrater reliability, confidence and ease of use of ICD‐10 diagnostic criteria for research were assessed in the Republic of Korea as part of the field trials of World Health Organization collaborative study. A total of 279 patients were diagnosed according to the ICD‐10 diagnostic criteria for research. Interrater reliability, calculated by kappa statistics, was found to be between 0.74 and 0.91 on 2‐character categories and between 0.64 and 0.90 on 3‐character categories except schizotypal disorder (F21). On the 4‐character categories, the agreement in the affective states between raters was lower. The reasons are discussed based on cultural differences.
