(See note under conformance)


meeting the requirements of a specification or standard.

Something is said to "conform to" a particular standard (as contrasted to some entity complying to a law). An example in this context is conforming to this specification (WCAG 3.0). Some standards define different levels of conformance. In that case, conformance could be to one of the levels of such a standard.

NOTE 1: Conformance is sometimes confused with compliance. Something (e.g. content) would conforms to a standard. An entity (e.g a person or company) complies with a law.

NOTE 2: Compliance with some laws may involve conformance to a standard.
