Are you suggesting that WebTrust / ETSI are now developing tools and
criteria to evaluate this compliance?

6818 - Updates 5280, thus is part of the series
3279 - A normative reference from 5280
5480 - Updates 3279
5758 - Updates 3279
So if you take compliance to 5280, then you've incorporated normative
dependencies on all the other specs Peter mentioned.
If it helps frame it at all, think of 6818 as version 1.1 of 5280, and 3279
as Appendix X (in BR / CA/B Forum Bylaw terms)
