Minimum standards vs Requirements

Anyone have a concrete answer of the difference between the two? Found a review question where a) mentioned requirements while b) mentioned minimum standards.

Minimum standard is the benchmark that all CFA charterholders have to adhere to. Where as minimum requirements could differ based on applicable law or regulatory requirements. As a charterholder, you are supposed to uphold the stricter of the standard or the applicable law. This is what I can make of the difference.
