The intention is to be comprehensive and concrete in explaining each item of the SPC to help readers better understand the meaning of each item on the SPC. It should be noted that the conditions and procedures precedes this annotation. Therefore, if there is a contradiction between the KAAB C&P and this annotation, the C&P override the annotation.
