Certified Mode

Certified Mode

You can use the certified (CERTIFIED) mode to verify addresses in accordance with the following postal certifications:
  • Address Matching Approval System (AMAS) certification for Australia Post. Certified to AMAS Cycle 2020.
  • Coding Accuracy Support System (CASS) certification for the United States Postal Service. Certified to CASS Cycle N.
    Address Verification also supports several requirements that the United States Postal Service proposes for CASS Cycle O.
  • SendRight certification for New Zealand Post. Certified to SendRight Cycle 2020.
  • Service National de L'Adresse (SNA) certification for La Poste of France.
    Address Verification certifies addresses in France to the following levels:
    • CEDEX A. Organization level.
    • Hexacle. House-number level.
    • Hexaligne 3. Building level.
    • Hexaposte. Post code level.
    • Hexavia. Street level.
  • Software Evaluation and Recognition Program (SERP) certification for Canada Post. Certified to SERP Cycle 2020.
An address that you want to verify in the certified mode must meet the formatting requirements that the postal authority of the country specifies. For example, to verify a Canada address in the certified mode, the input address can include a maximum of two delivery address lines (DALs). To verify a France address in the certified mode, the input address can include a maximum of six formatted address lines (FALs). Of the six FALs in France addresses, three FALs must contain delivery elements other than the post box and locality information.
For certified mode, you must have the certified databases (
Cx
) installed and the corresponding unlock codes specified in the
SetConfig.xml
file.
The certified mode falls back to the batch mode if the address belongs to a country that Informatica Address Verification does not support for the certified mode.
If you enable the certified mode and do not have the corresponding certified (
Cx
) reference address database, Address Verification returns an N2 error status.
If you want to disable the certified mode for some of the countries for which the certified mode is available, you can configure
DisableCertifiedModeISO3
. You can set the
DisableCertifiedModeISO3
attribute of the
Process
element to the ISO3 codes of the countries for which you want to disable the certified mode. If you disable the certified mode for some countries, Address Verification uses the batch mode to verify addresses from those countries.
