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) is the unit of the PDF Asso­ci­a­tion directly asso­ci­ated with the ver­aPDF con­sor­tium project. This organization, which includes many PDF Association members in its mailing list, will conduct monthly teleconference meetings to review milestones, ask questions and discuss concerns. The TWG will perform an oversight function for veraPDF, reviewing test files and performing acceptance testing.

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