veraPDF logoIn October 2014 the PDF Association and Open Preservation Foundation (lead partners in the veraPDF consortium) won phase 1 of the PREFORMA contract to design and develop an industry-supported open-source PDF/A validator.

The PDF Val­i­da­tion TWG (PDF Association members only) was the unit of the PDF Asso­ci­a­tion directly asso­ci­ated with the ver­aPDF con­sor­tium project. This organization, which included many PDF Association members in its mailing list,  conducted monthly teleconference meetings to review milestones, ask questions and discuss concerns. The TWG performed an oversight function for veraPDF, reviewed test files and performed acceptance testing.

Phase 1 concluded at the end of March 2015. PREFORMA awarded Phase 2, prototype development, to the veraPDF consortium, as discussed in its blog-post kicking off phase 2.
