European Court of Human Rights Invests in PDF/A Software

The European Court of Human Rights has purchased licenses for PDF/A compression and conversion software, demonstrating its intention to implement the PDF/A standard as part of its management strategy for case files and adoption of industry standards.

The group is using LuraDocument® PDF Compressor through Blue Car Technologies’ Court Management Information System (C.M.I.S) and its OpenText eDOCs Document Management System.

“The Court recognises the importance of the PDF/ A standard and LuraTech’s PDF/A conversion and compression tools will be integrated seamlessly into the Courts Management Information System (C.M.I.S). This will reduce our overall archive storage costs against an increasing case load and allow the Court to guarantee reproduction of the original document content in years to come.” John Hunter, Head of IT at the European Court of Human Rights, told ResponseSource Enquiry Service.

“Although not yet a legal requirement,” ResponseSource Enquiry Service says, ” the PDF/A format is the adopted format of the Council of Europe when filing documents through their Case-file and Document Management systems.”
