New PDF/A Docketing Standard Coming
A docketing standard requiring PDF/A formatting is soon to be implemented for filing PDF case documents with the Federal Courts. Although it is not currently required, it is suggested that all interested parties begin using the PDF/A format when filing documents through CM/ECF. Once the formal standard is implemented, PDF documents which are not in PDF/A format will NOT be accepted. This standard addresses security and archival concerns and will be mandatory in the near future.
