Reference points against which other things can be evaluated are the basic requirement for comparison.

Should I say of comparison? Or anything else?
I am not quite sure that "for comparison" is correct in this sentence.

Thanks

    Yes, for comparison is correct but you need to make "requirements " plural to agree
    with the subject "reference points".
