The Target of Evaluation in this PP is an HCD. HCDs support job functions to convert hardcopy documents into digital form (scanning), convert digital documents into hardcopy form (printing), duplicate hardcopy documents (copying), or transmit documents over a PSTN connection (PSTN faxing). Hardcopy documents typically take the form of paper, but can take other forms (e.g. transparencies).

For the purpose of this PP, a conforming HCD must support at least one of the job functions printing, scanning, or copying and must support the functions network communications and administration (which are described in section

The job functions supported by the HCD and the network communications and administration functions are “Required Uses” of a conforming HCD and are mandatory functions. A conforming HCD may also support “Conditionally Mandatory Uses”. Conditionally Mandatory Uses are optional functions, the presence of which in a HCD is not required for conformance, but which must meet conditionally mandatory requirements if they are present in a HCD.
