COMMUNITY

Industry Working Groups

The original PDF/A Competence Center was founded with the goal of establishing a common interpretation of ISO 19005.

Since becoming the PDF Association in 2011 our working groups are now organized around technical, marketing and liaison functions. They have grown to include a variety of objectives, including:

  • Promoting exchange between developers focusing in various subdomains
  • Oversight and policies for industry-accepted validation software such as veraPDF
  • Research and development of new PDF extensions and use cases
  • Development of industry standards, best practices, test suites and other aides to interoperability
  • Developing informational resources for PDF developers and users
