The Testing Framework (document format) specifies a testing framework defining a methodology for the development of the test strategies, test systems and resulting test specifications. The present document identifies the implementation under test (scope of the testing), the format for the test specification, the test architecture, the points of control and observation, the naming conventions (e.g. for test case ID and test case grouping ID), etc. It also provides the Implementation Conformance Statement which is basically a checklist for a client-owner so they know what parts of the specification will be tested and if any is optional. The ICS will be published as a separate GS.
