|ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 29 Software Implementation Guidelines|
SC 29 standards should include a reference software implementation of the standard, whenever feasible. The use of reference software included in a standard should not be a requirement for conformance to the standard. However, under exceptional circumstances, it may be a requirement of the standard to obtain results that are the same as or equivalent to the results obtained by the use of the standard's reference software.
