When is a PDF/A not a PDF/A?

Published on April 10, 2012 by kerryc
Trust, but verify was a phrase adopted by Reagan, who frequently used it when discussing U.S. relations with the Soviet Union. A similar mantra could be used when talking about PDF/A – trust, but validate. Law firms will be required to file in PDF/A with the Courts (each court will set its own timeframe) through the CM/ECF system. It is therefore important they have the ability to validate PDF/A documents to ensure 100% compliance with the standard before filing. Failure to comply with Court requirements and standards may result in filings being rejected.
