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 14 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.
Some 12.5 million records have a Residential address indicator, and some 1.5 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 have a business and 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 links:
The Address Detail PID, from Geoscape G-NAF
The DPID (Delivery Point Identifier), from the PAF
Residential and Non-Residential indicators, from the companion PAF Permission & Delivery data
The above is updated quarterly, after the most recent G-NAF update.
Please refer to the map below for a visual representation of the join between G-NAF and the PAF.
