PDF/A: Validating the Validators

The “Bavaria report” is a comparative review of PDF/A validators. It assesses the output of 7 PDF/A validation tools for conforming and non-conforming documents in the hope of providing guidelines for users and encouraging vendors of PDF/A validation tools to optimize their products.

“While the Bavaria report reveals shortcomings in the current product generation, we hope to contribute to further improvements and to help vendors of validation tools to enhance the accuracy of their products,” pdflib writes on its website. “This will ultimately increase the acceptance of PDF/A as a reliable standard for long-term document preservation.”
