What is PDF/A?

PDF/A is a searchable format which excludes those PDF features that give rise to concerns about the ability to archive documents. Newer scanners allow users to directly create a PDF/A. Users with older scanners can use a conversion tool (such as Adobe Acrobat 9) to convert scanned documents to PDF/A. Most eFileCA, eFileIL, and eFileIN courts prefer this format, but it is not a requirement.
