Batch PDF/A Conformance

PDF/A is an ISO-standardized version of the PDF format specialized for use in the archiving and long-term preservation of electronic documents. The conformance process ensures that the document can be reproduced exactly the same way using any software in years to come.
A PDF/A compliant document have to be 100% self-contained and all information necessary for displaying it in the same manner have to be embedded into the file.


You can choose between three available levels of conformance, PDF/A-1b, PDF/A-2b and PDF/A-3b. The lowest level, level 1, do support a much-reduced feature set of the PDF file format.
We do recommend that you use conformance level 2 (PDF/A-2b) or higher, as some files may fail to conform to level 1 due to the content of the file.
ViewCompanion Premium provides the following conformance tools:

  • Conform the active document to PDF/A. This will create a conformed copy of the file.
  • Batch Conform PDF files to PDF/A. This will conform a list of selected files into new files placed in the selected output folder.
