In order to check whether PDF/A-1 validation software actually finds the violations, PDF/A Competence Center states that the test suite deliberately violates the requirements of PDF/A-1 in a systematic way. The Isartor test suite consists of files that represent the PDF features that are not allowed in PDF/A-1b in addition to the basic PDF document structure that must be present for a file to conform to the standard and be validated as PDF/A-1b compliant.

Solid Documents did a competitive review using the Isartor test suite on Solid PDF Tools, Adobe® Acrobat® 9 and 2 other major PDF validation tools. Passing all the required checks while Acrobat 9 did not, Solid PDF Tools performed better than its competitors.

Solid Documents also used the Isartor test suite files to see which products could correct the PDF/A errors and convert into complaint PDF/A files.
