7 Conformance

7.1 Introduction

7.1.1 Description

7.1.2 Topics

7.2 Types of conformance

7.2.1 Conformance of an STF

7.2.2 Conformance of generators

7.2.3 Conformance of interpreters

7.2 Types of conformance

7.2.1 Conformance of an STF

A conforming transmittal encoded as specified in this part of ISO/IEC 18023 shall satisfy the following criteria:

  1. Each element is encoded in the manner specified in this part of ISO/IEC 18023.
  2. The syntax of the STF functionally conforms to the abstract transmittal format as specified in Part 2 of ISO/IEC 18023.

7.2.2 Conformance of generators

Conformance of STF generators is defined in terms of conformance to a particular profile of ISO/IEC 18023 as specified in 4.20 Profiles of Part 1 of ISO/IEC 18023.

If an STF generator G supports profile P of ISO/IEC 18023, G is a conforming P generator if G:

  1. generates only STF-encoded transmittals that conform to the requirements of profile P or is directed to operate in a mode where only such STF-encoded transmittals can be generated;
  2. generates no transmittal syntax in violation of Part 1 of ISO/IEC 18023; and
  3. generates no transmittal structure in violation of Part 2 of ISO/IEC 18023.

7.2.3 Conformance of interpreters

Conformance of STF interpreters is defined in terms of conformance to a particular profile of SEDRIS.

If P is a profile of ISO/IEC 18023 that conforms to the rules of this clause, an STF interpreter is a conforming P interpreter if it is able to read any STF-encoded transmittal that conforms to the requirements of profile P and the data is made available in accordance with the provisions of Part 1 of ISO/IEC 18023.
