The specification committee constantly works on creating and improving specifications for PDF creation and preflight. The committee follows industry trends closely and incorporates them in these specifications when appropriate. The specifications are updated as new applications and new PDF/X standards get released but the committee also always takes feedback from users and industry organizations into account.

Next to creating specifications, the committee will also define best practices, provide application settings and documentation for creating those PDF files.
