MEF 30.1 is a specification document developed by the Technical Committee of the MEF to provide an Implementation Agreement for Service OAM Fault Management.
"This document specifies an Implementation Agreement (IA) for Service Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) that builds upon the framework and requirements specified by MEF 17 . In particular, this IA specifies Service OAM requirements for Maintenance Entity Groups (MEGs) and for Fault Management (FM). Service OAM in general and FM in particular are defined in IEEE 802.1Q  and ITU-T Y.1731 . This IA details how to use these functions to achieve the MEF requirements of Service OAM in general and Service OAM FM in particular."
