Oddly enough CDMA transmitters also have a similar carrier frequency spec.
It's rarely discussed, since the required level of accuracy for the timing
is so much tighter.

GSM and derivates have +/- 50 ppb as frequency requirement, no time 

Later derivates add time requirements.

See ETSI and 3GPP specs, as freely available online.
