Introduction, Scope, and General Requirements of the BPE


While the scope of the BPE Standard defines the physical and technical boundaries of what it covers, its introduction provides an overview of its intent. It also touches on the philosophical aspect of the Standard when content relevant to the needs of a user is not specifically addressed in the Standard. Meaning that, based on the relevant requirements and recommendations contained in the Standard, it is advisable to interpolate from those guidelines and requirements what would be appropriate for a particular situation not specifically covered in the Standard.
