PDF/A: The timeless standard for archived documents
While the carrier has transformed from physical to digital, archiving documents remains an essential and inevitable part of today’s document management. For various industries and authorities it is even a legislated requirement. Often documents need to be stored for decades. And if you are going to go through all that trouble, you might as well go for a solution that does so consistently.
When it comes to the format and standard to use for digital archiving, there is a widespread acceptance of one specific standard: PDF/A. And for good reason. In this ebook we will look into those reasons, the standard’s details, popular use cases, areas of application over various industries and an archiving case study of an implementation of iText by medical imaging specialist Zeiss.
We’ll even take it one step further and provide you a tutorial on creating PDF/A conformant documents with the iText 7 Suite - a leading open-source PDF library/SDK. iText was the first to successfully bring PDF to the backend and has been doing so for over 20 years. As an active member of both the ISO-committee and the PDF Association, iText remains an innovator in PDF technology to this day and its software is deeply intertwined with the evolution of the PDF/A standard.
