Terms of Reference (ToR) for ETSI Project Smart Card  Platform (TC SCP) Working Group "TEST" (TC SCP TEST) 

Approved at SCP Plenary meeting #37 (SCP-080243) 

1. Responsibilities

The main responsibilities of TC SCP  TEST are:

  • Identify and define tes requirements for TC SCP and services related to it. 
  • Create TC SCP test specifications and reports.
  • Maintain TC SCP test specifications and reports.

2. Tasks

The main tasks of TC SCP TEST are:

  • Create, develop and maintain application independent test specifications related to TC SCP technical specifications. 
  • Ensure overall coherence and timely and expeditious evolution of the test specifications.
  • Verify consistency of the test specifications with the specifications of other bodies.

3. Organisation

TC SCP TEST meets at least four times a year at regular intervals.

Splinter groups can be set up to discuss the various topics depending on the tasks identified by the WG Plenary. During a meeting, the WG meets in plenary sessions to give guidance to the splinter groups and discuss and finalise their output.

The specification work should be done as much as possible in the regular WG meetings. Electronic work to advance topics and documents for the discussion in a WG meeting is encouraged. However some ad hoc sessions might be organised in some cases such as:

  • When there is an exceptionally high amount of work needed to accomplish an agreed target. 
  • When specific expertise is required. 
  • When there is a need for a joint session with another group. 

A Work Item Description (WID) needs to be set up in order to start the development of a new test specification or a new technical report. 

4. Liaisons

To facilitate its work, TC SCP TEST shall identify relevant bodies and ask the TC SCP Plenary for the agreement to set up direct liaison to these bodies.

Formal liaison should be established with bodies sharing references with TC SCP test specifications in order to facilitate the work on specifications dependence/consistency.
