The 30/360 US rule is identical to 30/360 ISDA when the EOM (end-of-month) convention does not apply. This indicates whether all coupon payment dates fall on the last day of the month. If the investment is not EOM, it will always pay on the same day of the month (e.g., the 10th).
All methods of calculating the number of days between dates you can find in
