|Acronym||ETSI TS 102 240|
|Committee||ETSI TECHNICAL COMMITTEE SMART CARD PLATFORM (SCP)|
The present document defines the service description of the UICC Application Programming Interface (UICC API) internal to the UICC. Stage one is an overall service description, and does not deal with the implementation details of the API. The present document includes information applicable to network operators, service providers and terminal, UICC, Network Access Application (NAA) providers, switch and database manufacturers. The present document contains the core requirements, which are sufficient to provide a complete service. It is highly desirable however, that technical solutions for a UICC API should be sufficiently flexible to allow for possible enhancements. Additional functionalities not documented in the present document may implement requirements which are considered outside the scope of the present document. This additional functionality may be on a network wide basis, nation-wide basis or particular to a group of users. Such additional functionality shall not compromise conformance to the core requirements of the service.
