API’s Conformance Matrix is required to be completed by all new API Spec Q1 registering organisations. Orginally it was created for the change to the 9th Edition to manage the transition. The 9th Edition was a significant change, with over 85 new Clauses and 5 new Sections. The changes include new concepts like Risk management as well as new requirements and new numbering. These changes needed serious review before the completion of the Conformance Matrix and the implementation of the changes ready for the next API Audit. The Conformance Matrix is not quick to complete, since there are 425 lines of headings and requirements.
Have you reviewed the requirements?
Have you determined how to comply with the requirements?
