Recommendations and legal requirements
PDF/A for long-term archiving in MoReq2
MoReq is a European specification for electronic document and records management. The abbreviation stands for “Model Requirements for the Management of Electronic Documents and Records”. MoReq was originally developed for a standardized exchange of documents between the European Commission and the governments of member states. The newest version of MoReq (MoReq2) includes PDF/A in the list of recommended data formats, e.g. for scanned documents and for long-term archiving. More information; a copy of the standard can be downloaded here.
