Australia Post PAF
Callpoint Spatial is an authorised Australia Post PAF data reseller.
We license for customer’s internal business use:
The PAF (Postal Address File)
Includes the important DPID (Delivery Point Identifier) for each address.
The PAF comprises some 15 million records in total. Of these, some 2 million records represent PO Boxes.
The companion Permission & Delivery file
Two important columns in the P&D are the Residential and non-Residential indicators.
Nearly 13.6 million records have a Residential address indicator, and some 1.4 million have a non-Residential address indicator.
PAF update options
We can supply on a once-off, quarterly or monthly basis as set by Australia’s Post update schedule.
Australia Post’s standard license terms apply.
Can we obtain a Residential and Non-Residential PAF flag linked to G-NAF?
This is a question asked by a number of customers. To help, Callpoint Spatial can license you a dataset that combines:
(1) The DPID (Delivery Point Identifier) and all the address fields, from the PAF
(2) The Address Detail PID, from G-NAF
(3) Residential and Non-Residential indicators, from the companion PAF Permission & Delivery
We can provide the above on a monthly PAF update basis (though using the most recent quarterly G-NAF).
Please refer to the map below for a visual representation of the join between G-NAF, PAF and PAF Resi/ Non-Resi.
