Federal courts moving to archival standard for PDF (PDF/A)

The federal courts will soon begin moving the Case Management and Electronic Case Filing (CM/ECF) system to the PDF/A standard for electronic filing. The PACER website offers more information about the transition. The Acrobat for Legal Professionals blog also notes this development and provides advice about implementing PDF/A.

PDF/A is an ISO-approved subset (ISO 19005: PDF/A) of the standard PDF specification and is intended for long-term archiving of electronic documents.
