The Postcode Address File

What is the most widely-recognised and used source and reference point for UK addresses?

Simple, the Royal Mail Postcode Address File (PAF), which is a core part of all AFD Software name and address validation solutions.

At AFD we are heavily involved with Royal Mail in producing and distributing PAF. In addition to providing thousands of AFD Software customers with Name, Address and Bank validation solutions, we serve Royal Mail in a unique way. We do this by checking, processing and distributing the files on which over 40,000 organisations rely and which is accessed by millions of people during their everyday lives.

AFD can help every organisation, large and small, wherever names, address and bank data are used.
