Address Enhancement

For UK reocords the Enhanced Address Mixed Case service will use our UK Address Management System to:

  • verify and correct locality details
  • verify postcodes to premise level, where possible
  • try to apply a full correct postcode to addresses with a partial postcode, no postcode or an invalid postcode
  • maintain unrecognised lines of data (i.e. not part of the PAF address) which appears immediately below the thoroughfare
  • maintain all non verified PAF address elements above the thoroughfare, for example, house names

All services will subsequently use this enhanced address for more accurate results.

Our UK Address Management System contains the following reference files:

  • Royal Mail Changes - file containing all Royal Mail address changes since 1972
  • Purple Smart Tables - identifies textual errors below thoroughfare
  • Royal Mail PAF file

This service provides an address format in mixed case with a maximum of 7 scrolled up lines.

If you require an address format of PAF exact address lines and town,county and postcode in fixed fields, use the PAF Address service.

For International records the service carries out a structural reformatting of the address into the required postal format for the country on the record. To carry this out the software identifies the Town, County, Postcode and Country elements contained within the supplied address block. It then puts these elements back together in the correct format.

DATA360 contains extensive International tables to aid in the identification of the various Town, County, Postcode and Country elements contained within an addrsss block. However, it does not validate the extracted information and determine for example, if the extracted Town and Postcode are a vidid combination.
