The Product Standard is a precisely defined and documented set of functionality to which products can be certified. It provides a mapping between certification, the specifications, and the test suites needed to demonstrate conformance.

This Product Standard enables the construction of
portable gateway applications that allow messages from one
messaging system (for example, electronic mail) to be
converted and forwarded according to the formats and
conventions of another messaging system. Usage is not
restricted to electronic mail since the interfaces and
protocols may equally be used to convey messages
containing arbitrary binary data; for example, electronic
data interchange (EDI). Usage is not restricted to X.400
OSI networks as the programming interfaces are
equally applicable to other protocols.
