PDF/Archive Secures ISO Approval

Sep 16, 2005

AIIM, the Enterprise Content Management Association and NPES, the Association for Suppliers of Printing, Publishing and Converting Technologies, have announced that the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has approved PDF/Archive (PDF/A). PDF/A enables organizations to archive documents electronically in an attempt to ensure preservation of content over an extended period of time and that those documents can be retrieved and rendered with a consistent and predictable result in the future. The standard will be published in September and available for purchase from either Web site.
