3.4  Test tolerancesWord‑p. 38
The requirements given in the present document make no allowance for measurement uncertainty. The test specification TS 38.533 defines the test tolerances.

3.5  Frequency bands grouping

3.5.1  Introduction

The intention with the frequency band grouping below is to increase the readability of the specification.
The frequency bands grouping is derived based on UE REFSENS requirements specified in [18], [19], [20], and assuming 0.5 dB step between the neighbour groups. The groups are defined in the order of increasing REFSENS, i.e., the group A has the smallest REFSENS among the groups. For the same SCS and a given bandwidth, the bands within the same group have the same Io conditions in a corresponding requirement in this specification, provided the bands support this SCS. For different SCSs supported by a frequency band and the same bandwidth, different Io conditions may apply for the frequency band in the requirements, while the band group is the same, based on the lowest REFSENS requirement normalized by the number of subcarriers among its supported SCSs for this bandwidth. For the same SCS but different supported bandwidths, the group for a band is determined based on the lowest REFSENS requirement normalized by the number of subcarriers among its supported bandwidths.
