More about PDF/A

Versions and other functions


PDF / A – The PDF for archiving
PDF / A is the name for the ISO standard 19005 and defines a standard document format for the long-term archiving of electronic documents. The standard specifies which PDF functions must be included or which must not be used to archive documents in the long term.

The PDF / A standard
Important: The PDF / A standard is “constructive” – if a document is PDF / A-1 compliant it is automatically covered by the PDF / A-2 and PDF / A-3 standard – the higher standards allow more PDF functions. You agree the required level and standard to the required and desired functions.

PDF / A-3
With PDF / A Level 3 it is now possible to embed any files and documents in the PDF / A. This can be combined for archiving a PDF / A file for searching, viewing and printing the original digital file. The embedded files can be extracted from the PDF at any time.

You can easily buy our products in our WebShop. (MasterCard, Visa, PayPal, SOFORT and invoice for companies with valid UstID / UID)
