PDF/A is an important variant of the PDF format. It is specially made for the purpose of archiving and digital preservation, which allows anyone to keep the contents ready for long-term storage. With PDF/A, readers will be able to access the same information and contents in the same way it was intended, regardless of device or software used. With technology continually developing, some documents become obsolete or incompatible with the new readers and that is what PDF/A prevents.
