Z.6.1.2 Conformance Requirements

An implementation may conform to one of the SOP Classes of the Composite Instance Retrieve Without Bulk Data SOP Class Group as an SCU, SCP or both. The Conformance Statement shall be in the format defined in PS 3.2.

Z.6.1.2.1 SCU Conformance

An implementation that conforms to one of the SOP Classes of the Composite Instance Retrieve Without Bulk Data SOP Class Group as an SCU shall support retrievals against the Query/Retrieve Information Model described in Section Z.6.1.1 using the C-GET SCU Behavior described in Section Z.4.2.2. An implementation that conforms to one of the SOP Classes of the Composite Instance Retrieve Without Bulk Data SOP Class Group as an SCU, and which generates retrievals using the C-GET operation shall state in its Conformance Statement the Storage Service Class SOP Classes under which it shall support the C-STORE sub-operations generated by the C-GET.

Z.6.1.2.2 SCP Conformance

An implementation that conforms to one of the SOP Classes of the Composite Instance Retrieve Without Bulk Data SOP Class Group as an SCP shall support retrievals against both levels of the Retrieve Information Model described in Section Z.6.1.1 using the C-GET SCP Behavior described in Section Z.4.2.3. An implementation that conforms to one of the SOP Classes of the Composite Instance Retrieve Without Bulk Data SOP Class Group as an SCP, and which satisfies retrievals using the C-GET operation shall state in its Conformance Statement the Storage Service Class SOP Classes under which it shall support the C-STORE sub-operations generated by the C-GET.
