Postcode Address File (PAF) | LexisNexis Risk Solutions UK

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 28 million addresses and is constantly updated.

PAF is integral to our data solutions and within our portfolio of datasets; it is constantly updated to ensure that the information we hold is exhaustive and current.

PAF cleansing

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. Correct address information allows you to be confident that mailings are forwarded to the correct destination, prompting higher response rates.

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 may rest assured that all address information supplied is both current and accurate.

We supply Postcode Address File cleansing as part of a complete data cleansing exercise. To ensure your address data is as up-to-date as possible, contact us today.
