- Functional/Operational Requirements
- Interconnectivity and Interoperability Requirements
- Quality requirements

NUMBERING OF STANDARD DOCUMENT
In order to maintain alignment/uniformity with the International pattern of numbering of Standards, TEC has adopted the following numbering scheme
NUMBERING SCHEME FOR TEC STANDARDs
TEC Standard documents shall be numbered as:
TEC ABCDE: YYYY
- TEC denotes TEC Standard
- ABCDE is Five-digit numeric number given to standard document
AB (00-99) indicates Domain /Major Technologies
CD (00-99) –Numeric number of Standard document; may be decided by respective TEC Division
Digit E (Type of document): Standard for Generic Requirements for a Product/ Standard for Interface Requirements for a Product/ Standard for Service Requirements (Earlier GRs/IRs/SRs) and their TSTPs may be numbered serially by respective Divisions. i.e digit E can be even number i.e. 0,2,4,6 for Product/Interface/Service/Standard and +1 i.e. 1,3,5 for related TSTP/Test Guide.
7&8 - Spare/reserve for future allotment by RC Division
9 - Guidelines (Division Specific)
YYYY: Document Approval Year.
If a document is revised during a year, then the revision should be mentioned in bracket after YYYY e.g. ABCDE: YYYY (Rev1.0). Where Rev1.0 means first revision, Rev 2.0 means second revision and so on during a year.If revision is done in subsequent years, then YYYY shall describe the revision whereas ABCDE will remain same.
NUMBERING SCHEME FOR ADOPTED STANDARDs:
TEC has adopted two line numbering scheme for the adoption of Standards. As an example, if TEC has adopted TSDSI Standard document, it shall be represented as:
TEC Standard Document No…. First Line
TSDSI STD No…… Second Line
In case of adoption of documents, digit E shall be allotted by the concerned Division, giving a range of 000-999 (digits CDE) per domain (digits AB).
