The Portable Document Format

The Portable Document Format (PDF) was born on 15 June, 1993 when Adobe Systems shipped Adobe Acrobat 1.0.

23 years and hundreds of billions of files later, PDF is the world’s chosen electronic document format; a universal choice for the fixed-layout, self-contained documents so vital to businesses across the globe.

The PDF Association delivers vital information about implementing PDF technology to software developers and IT decision makers.

The PDF Association helps document management and ECM implementers understand and leverage ISO-standardized PDF technology.

PDF Association members benefit from technical information, a developer community and direct access to the standards development process.

Enterprise systems implementers and end-users benefit from standardized PDF technology.
