an initiative of the Association for Digital Document Standards (ADDS) e.V., founded in September 2006.
The association is geared towards developers of PDF solutions; companies that work with PDF in document management systems (DMS) and electronic content management (ECM), interested individuals, and users who want to implement PDF technology in their organizations. The PDF Association now includes members from over 20 countries world-wide.
Beginning in 2006 with the PDF/A Competence Center, the PDF Association exists to provide software vendors with information and resources on the various International Standards for PDF to help them make the most of their investment in PDF technology.
As adopted by the Board in January, 2011, the Mission of the PDF Association is this:
To promote Open Standards-based electronic document implementations using PDF technology through education, expertise and shared experience for stakeholders worldwide.
PDF/UA, like PDF itself, is internally complex, but used correctly, actually makes things easier.
