3D PDF Consortium Approved by ANSI as U.S. TAG Administrator for PDF ISO Standards

The 3D PDF Consortium has been approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as a standards developer and has assumed the role of secretariat and U.S. TAG Administrator for ISO/TC 171/SC 2. This international committee is focused on standardizing technologies and processes for document file formats and electronic data management systems (EDMS). A major aspect of the committee’s work involves standardizing the PDF file format, including PDF/A (long-term preservation), PDF/E (engineering) and PDF/UA (accessibility).

“We are very pleased that the 3D PDF Consortium has assumed leadership of this effort,” said ANSI President and CEO S. Joe Bhatia. “It’s critical to ensuring that U.S. positions on document file formats and electronic data management systems continue to be developed in an open, collaborative way and put forth to ISO effectively.”

The 3D PDF Consortium participates in standardization activities in the following two areas:

  • Internationally, the 3D PDF Consortium serves as the administrator of the U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to ISO/TC 171/SC 2 of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The TAG represents the U.S. National Body (ANSI) in the development of international standards for document file formats, EDMS systems, and authenticity of information.
  • The 3D PDF Consortium establishes liaisons with other standards development organizations when mutually beneficial, common interests exist.

“The 3D PDF Consortium is committed to open standards and the return on investment they can provide.” said Jerry McFeeters, Executive Director of the 3D PDF Consortium. “The standards developed by ISO/TC 171/SC 2 have wide-ranging implications for a vast number of businesses working in today’s global markets. It is imperative that our members and partners have a strong voice in this process through organizations such as ours to ensure that our standards evolve as required by our rapidly evolving technology landscape.”

The 3D PDF Consortium is always interested in hearing from stakeholders active in the fields of PDF or EDMS. If you or your organization would like to participate, or for more information on the standards program, contact 3D PDF Consortium Technical Director, Phil Spreier at phil.spreier@3dpdfconsortium.org.
