Important Disclaimer:  The GDST Capability Test is limited in its application.  It verifies the ability of a software product or system to enable GDST compliance.  However, it does NOT verify:
  1. The level of GDST compliance resulting from use of the software, including by the company that developed it.   For example, it does NOT verify that a company implementing the software is actually collecting and delivering GDST-compliant information in a transactional environment; or
  2. The capability of the software when implemented by any company other than the developer, such as a client of a solution provider (considering that performance of software may vary when installed and operated in specific operational contexts).

The GDST is working towards developing mechanisms and benchmarks to address these other verification needs in the future.
