Section C.1.1.1. says:

GeneralizedTime : "197110141200Z"

It should say:

Notes:

X.690
11 Restrictions on BER employed by both CER and DER
11.7 GeneralizedTime
11.7.2 The seconds element shall always be present.

In rfc 3739, C.3 DER-encoding, the second-zeroes are present:
... ..313937 31313031 34313230 3030305A ...
They are just missing in the string representation above.

Additionally RFC 5280 requires the second-zeroes be present.

Section 3.2.6.1. says:

If a value of type SemanticsInformation is present in a QCStatement
where the statementID component is set to id-qcs-pkix-QCSyntax-v1 or
id-qcs-pkix-QCSyntax-v2, then at least one of the semanticsIdentifier
or nameRegistrationAuthorities fields must be present, as indicated.
Note that the statementInfo component need not be present in a 
QCStatement value even if the statementID component is set to id-
qcs-pkix-QCSyntax-v1 or id-qcs-pkix-QCSyntax-v2.

It should say:

Notes:

The extra minus sign "-" in pkix-QCSyntax should be deleted.
To avoid confusion of the minus sign with a hyphen "id-qcs-pkixQCSyntax-v1" should not be broken across lines.
