1. Background: Definition of Conformance
Note: The following sections are copied from the tech specs. See the respective technical specification for the latest definition.
A conforming host system is any algorithm realized as software and/or hardware that complies with the relevant normative statements in §6 HTTP REST API.
A conforming requesting data recipient is any algorithm realized as software and/or hardware that complies with the relevant normative statements in §6 HTTP REST API.
This checklist is a recommendation from WBCSD to be used as a reference for the Bilateral Conformance Testing.
