PDF Association

Service Provider


Originally launched as the PDF/A Competence Center in 2006, the organization's original function was to promote common understanding of the PDF/A archival subset of the PDF format. It was during this period that the PDF Association developed its first set of PDF/A Technical Notes and the Isartor Test Suite, critical building-blocks for modern implementations of the PDF/A specification.

In 2009 the ISO confirmed the PDF/A Competence Center's status as a category A liaison with ISO TC 171 SC 2, allowing the organization to act as a conduit for information between members and the ISO committees managing PDF and PDF subset standards.

In 2011 the PDF/A Competence Center became the PDF Association, and formally expanded its scope to include all PDF and PDF-related standards.

The mission of the PDF Association is to promote awareness and adoption of ISO-standardized PDF technology worldwide.
