PDF/A CONFORMANCE CHECKER

OVERVIEW

A unique collaboration, the VeraPDF Consortium brings together an end user community and a software industry rooted in the principle of interoperability based on ISO standardized technology. The VeraPDF consortium will generate an authoritative corpora of test files and execute the development of a purpose built implementation checker, associated policy checker optimized for the use of digital preservationists, and metadata fixer software. The VeraPDF consortium’s end product will be definitive conformance checking software for PDF/A-1, PDF/A-2 and PDF/A-3 under GPLv3 or later and MPLv2 or later open source licenses together with a substantial and enthusiastic community supporting and extending the model.
