Royal Mail “Powered by PAF” - the best address data available


The PAF address data we supply is provided to us by the Royal Mail Address Management unit. It is regarded in the UK as the best source of postcode to address, or address to postcode data available. The Royal Mail collect information from Local Authorities, and feedback from 70 thousand postmen, and women whilst on their morning beat. Thus the Postcode Address File has thousands of additions and corrections to it every day. On everage 6,000 changes per day.

Every night we download these UK Postcode Address changes and apply to our copy of the Postcode Address File, ready for users the next day, using our Powered by PAF postal software.
