When specifying information elements which are to be represented by bit strings, if not otherwise specifically stated in the semantics description of the concerned IE or elsewhere, the following principle applies with regards to the ordering of bits:

– The first bit (leftmost bit) contains the most significant bit (MSB);

– The last bit (rightmost bit) contains the least significant bit (LSB);

– When importing bit strings from other specifications, the first bit of the bit string contains the first bit of the concerned information.
