The present document specifies rules for the structure and drafting of documents intended to become a 3GPP Technical Specification or Technical Report. These rules are intended to ensure that such documents are drafted in as uniform a manner as is practicable, irrespective of the technical content.
The present document is based on the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 3, but is a self-contained document that will be maintained as such.
These drafting rules complement the 3GPP Working Procedures.
The following documents contain provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of the present document.
References are either specific (identified by date of publication, edition number, version number, etc.) or non-specific.
For a specific reference, subsequent revisions do not apply.
For a non-specific reference, the latest version applies. In the case of a reference to a 3GPP document (including a GSM document), a non-specific reference implicitly refers to the latest version of that document in the same Release as the present document.
