  • Updated data recipient hosted CDR Arrangement Revocation End Point non-normative example alg field from HS256 to PS256
  • Updated self-signed JWT client authentication non-normative example alg field from HS256 to PS256
  • Added clarification that when statuses are not received or recognised from the CDR Register
  • Added requirement for data holders to ignore unsupported authorisation scopes
