Hi Everyone!

We’re happy to announce our new PDF/A validator, available with the latest release.

Why is it important to validate PDF/A files?

Long term archiving is a critical requirement for many industries.
Because of the complexity of PDF document format, it is very important to validate if all the PDF/A specification requirements are met.

To be certain that the files created by the GdPicture.NET PDF/A converter engine are compliant with the PDF/A ISO standard (ISO 19005), we have developed a PDF/A validator.

The GdPicture.NET PDF/A validator features

The GdPicture.NET PDF/A validator provides conformance validation for all PDF/A versions:

  • PDF/A-1 (ISO 19005-1:2005)
  • PDF/A-2 (ISO 19005-2:2011)
  • PDF/A-3 (ISO 19005-3:2012)

It automatically determines the claimed conformance of the document.
It provides both a basic validation result or a detailed machine-readable report (XML).

The engine analyses and validates the following elements:

  • PDF structure
  • lexical, syntactic, and semantic levels
  • metadata
  • fonts
  • color space
  • other properties
