This document specifies a set of tests and procedures designed to verify whether bitstreams and decoders meet normative requirements specified in ISO/IEC 23094-2.
An encoder can claim conformance to ISO/IEC 23094-2 if the bitstreams that it generates are conforming bitstreams. Characteristics of coded bitstreams and decoders are defined in ISO/IEC 23094-2. Decoder characteristics define the properties and capabilities of the applied decoding process. The capabilities of a decoder specify which bitstreams the decoder can decode and reconstruct. A bitstream can be decoded by a decoder if the characteristics of the bitstream are within the specified decoder capabilities.
 This document includes an electronic attachment containing the conformance bitstreams identified within the text and the reference software. The electronic attachment is available at the following link: https://standards.iso.org/iso-iec/23094/-3/ed-1/en/.
