Recommendation ITU‑T Z.164 defines the operational semantics of TTCN-3 (Testing and Test Control Notation 3).

This Recommendation is based on the TTCN-3 core language defined in Recommendation ITU‑T Z.161.

This second revision of the Recommendation contains amendments, clarifications, corrigenda and editorial corrections.

This Recommendation is technically aligned with ETSI ES 201 873-4 V4.4.1 (2012).
