And also a couple of tools (sorry, these are not free of charge) from several vendors to create PDDF/UA files, or to help fix PDF files such that they become PDF/UA files.

...and if you want to understand the guts of PDF/UA conformance without paying for the ISO specification itself, please see the PDF Association’s Matterhorn Protocol, which distills PDF/UA’s requirements into a series of checkpoints and failure conditions:


If you insist on the “real thing” but would prefer to spend $15 instead of $90, you can get the ANSI/AIIM edition of PDF/UA from AIIM:
