Any Attributes for which Attribute Values may be provided (using the N-SET Service) by the SCU shall be enumerated in the Conformance Statement.

An implementation that conforms to this SOP Class as an SCU shall specify under which conditions during the performance of the real-world Performed Procedure Step it will create the SOP Class Instance and under which conditions it will set the status value to COMPLETED and DISCONTINUED.

An implementation that conforms to this SOP Class as an SCU shall specify what strategy it applies to group Storage SOP Class Instances referenced in a Performed Procedure Step.
