FreeBSD is unix and FreeBSD complies with the Single Unix
Specification and other standards like POSIX, so basically yes. If
theres any difference between the standards spec and the FreeBSD
implementation, it's generally because the FreeBSD implementation is a
superset of what's required.
 Informally, because actually getting the OS tested costs money.
That's why FreeBSD is unix, but not Unix(TM).
