Postcode Address File - PAF®

Access the UK's most up to date address database

What are the benefits of using PAF?

  • Superior quality of addresses: using PAF removes inconsistencies and duplicates from your address list, while ensuring it is standardised correctly. A number of cleaning and suppression exercises are performed on the data, making our data superior to competitors.
  • Compact storage: we compress the address file into a more manageable size (roughly 85% reduction). This makes it easier to store the data and provides benefits when accessing the data across networks
  • Additional features: our enhanced PAF file is available in Welsh. It also includes non-required localities and postal counties.
