PDF/A documents are not only generated from digital sources a large percentage of documents are created from scanned hard copies received by mail or from files that are being converted to digital form. In such cases, the company has no access to the original files, and the documents that need to be converted into electronic documents are merely paper copies. PDF/A is preferable to other electronic formats because it is an ISO standard and a target format that provides a range of benefits with regard to archiving and reusing content.
