While Adobe Acrobat comes with a built-in PDF/A "Preflight" verification process, there is a **FREE** alternative called veraPDF. It is a purpose-built, industry supported, open source, PDF/A validator which covers all PDF/A parts and conformance levels.
To ensure compatibility across all devices (Windows, Linux, Mac) the application has been developed in Java and as such, it requires a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) to be installed.
Select the veraPDF for Windows option and download the verapdf-installer.zip (approx. 46.1 MB) file to your hard drive.
