Postcode address file
The Postcode Address File (PAF) is the official Royal Mail database of all known addresses in the UK. The most comprehensive, correct and up-to-date address database in the UK, the Postcode Address File contains over 27 million addresses and is constantly updated.
PAF is an integral dataset within our portfolio of datasets and it is constantly updated to ensure that the information we hold is current and comprehensive.
Cleansing both consumer databases and mailing list data against the Postcode Address File will ensure that you have full and complete addresses for your customers and prospects. Correct address information allows you to be confident that mailings are going to the correct destination, which will prompt higher response rates from current customers and prospects alike. If you hold incorrect address information, you will be missing out on some valuable marketing opportunities.
All of the addresses contained in our datasets have been PAF cleansed and matched, ensuring that all of our address information is correct and up-to-date. Whenever you use any of our core services, whether to trace people, conduct identity checks or for data cleansing, you can rest assured that all address information supplied is both current and accurate.
