A conforming OAIS Archive implementation shall support the model of information described in 2.2. The OAIS Reference Model does not define or require any particular method of implementation of these concepts. A conforming OAIS Archive shall fulfill the responsibilities listed in 3.1. Subsection 3.2 provides examples of the mechanisms that may be used to discharge the responsibilities identified in 3.1. These mechanisms are not required for conformance. A separate standard, as noted in 1.5, has been produced on which accreditation and certification processes can be built.
