Industry Standard reports

The Industry Standards report lets you know if your application complies with standards of a selected industry committee.

About this task

The list of templates to choose from is updated by HCL as new standards are created for different industries and your AppScan is updated automatically on a regular basis.

If you do not find the industry standard that you need in the list, you can create your own Industry Standard report template (see User-defined reports).

The Industry Standard reports include the following sections:

Section Title

Information Presented


Explanation of the standard.

Compliance Summary

List and count of non-compliance issues.

Note that a single issue may indicate non-compliance of more than one section, and therefore the number of issues per section, for all the sections, may be more than the number of unique issues.

Unique Compliance Issues

List of non-compliant URLs, relevant parameters or cookies, and test names.

Each issue appears once only.

Compliance Issues by Section

Detailed explanations of how your application is non-compliant, with remediation to address issues.
