On January 29, 2007, Adobe announced its intent to release the full Portable Document Format (PDF) 1.7 specification to AIIM, the Enterprise Content Management Association, for the purpose of publication by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
In July, 2008, Adobe's PDF Reference 1.7 became ISO 32000, and control of the PDF Reference passed to the international community. See the U.S. Committee's statement on the relationship between the two documents. ISO 32000-1:2008 is now the current and correct specification for PDF files. If you are interested in building applications or toolkits to create, manage or manipulate PDF files, you'll want to buy your copy of ISO 32000-1:2008 from the International Standards Organization catalog today.
ISO 32000-2 (under development)
In 2012, to extend the time available to develop the document, the ISO 32000 Committee voted to cancel the initial project and start a New Project Item (NPI). In 2014 the 2nd Committee Draft (CD) following the NPI will be balloted and discussed in Pretoria, South Africa, during ISO TC 171's May meeting.
This wiki is the workspace for the International Committee for ISO 32000, including agendas, meetings and interim work-products. Certain pages are dedicated (and restricted to) to the functions of the U.S. Committee for ISO 32000.
Those wishing to join either the US or ISO Committees for ISO 32000 should contact Betsy Fanning at AIIM.
