You can use the Element Relevance value to understand which of the address elements are relevant for an address according to the local postal guidelines. Informatica Address Verification returns a value of 1 for address elements that are relevant, and 0 for elements that are not relevant.
All address elements with an Element Relevance value of 1 must be present for the local postal authority to consider an address valid. Element Relevance might vary from address to address for countries with different address types, such as rural address and metropolitan addressing. Furthermore, address elements that have actually been validated against reference data might override the default Element Relevance value defined for that address element.
Element Relevance values are available only for addresses with a process status value of Cx or Vx in batch and interactive modes or I3 or I4 values in the interactive mode. Other assessment codes such as Element Input Status, Element Result Status, Extended Element Result Status, and Address Resolution Code always return a value regardless of the process status.
