For all kinds of reasons, it is sometimes necessary to archive PDF files for a (very) long time. The International Standards Organization (ISO) created the PDF/A standard for such documents. This standard defines what you can and cannot do in documents that need to be archived. It spans several different parts (called PDF/A-1, PDF/A-2…) that are further subdivided into different flavors.
Support for PDF/A is the major feature in the callas pdfaPilot solution but is also featured in the callas pdfToolbox solution that is generally targeted towards print workflows.
