U.S. Bankruptcy Court, District of New Mexico Delays PDF/A Implementation

New Mexico’s Bankruptcy Court has delayed implementation of the PDF/A standard until software vendors support the format in their systems and standard word processing packages.

The New Mexico Courts web page says, “The Bankruptcy Clerk’s Office is considering requiring that all documents be filed in PDF/A format with the upgrade to CM/ECF 4.1, which is anticipated to occur in the fall of 2011.”

They believe the transition to PDF/A will occur soon after and encourage potential e-filers to check the compatibility of software they may use.
