As defined in clause 4.9; i.e. there are no specific NB-IoT requirements in addition to the default test USIM parameters, unless specified otherwise in a test case defined in TS 36.523-1 [18].

For PLMN (re-)selection, the UE will decide on the PLMN to select based on ‘E-UTRA’ as Access Technology in the PLMN selector of USIM Elementary Files PLMNwAcT, OPLMNwAcT and HPLMNwAcT and then use its device category (= NB-IoT) to properly access the NB-IoT network.
