Section 6, pg. 18 says:

      rSASSA-PSS-SHA512-Identifier  AlgorithmIdentifier  ::=  {
                              algorithm id-RSASSA-PSS,
|                             parameters rSSASSA-PSS-SHA512-params }
                                         ^^^^
      vvvv
|     rSSASSA-PSS-SHA512-params RSASSA-PSS-params ::= {
                              hashAlgorithm sha512Identifier,
                              maskGenAlgorithm mgf1SHA512Identifier,
                              saltLength 20,
                              trailerField 1  }

It should say:

      rSASSA-PSS-SHA512-Identifier  AlgorithmIdentifier  ::=  {
                              algorithm id-RSASSA-PSS,
|                             parameters rSASSA-PSS-SHA512-params }
                                         ^^^
      vvv
|     rSASSA-PSS-SHA512-params RSASSA-PSS-params ::= {
                              hashAlgorithm sha512Identifier,
                              maskGenAlgorithm mgf1SHA512Identifier,
                              saltLength 20,
                              trailerField 1  }
