Enrichments for the United Kingdom Addresses

Enrichments for the United Kingdom Addresses

You can configure Informatica Address Verification to include address enrichments in validated United Kingdom addresses.
To receive address enrichments for United Kingdom, install the latest supplementary reference data files for United Kingdom and ensure that the valid license keys are available for the data files.
Address Verification includes the following enrichments in validated United Kingdom addresses:
AddressKey
An eight-digit numeric code that maps to an address in the Postcode Address File (PAF) from the Royal Mail. An Address Key in conjunction with Organization Key and the Post Code Type uniquely identifies an address.
DeliveryPointSuffix
A two-character suffix that the Royal Mail assigns to a mailbox in a United Kingdom post code area. The first character in a delivery point suffix is a number and the second character is a letter. A combination of a post code and the delivery point suffix identifies a mailbox.
DeliveryPointType
A single-character code that indicates whether the address points to a residence (R), a small organization (O), or a large organization (L).
OrganizationKey
A unique 8-digit numeric code that Royal Mail assigns to small organizations.
UDPRN
An eight-character code that uniquely identifies each postal address in the Royal Mail PAF database. The Unique Delivery Point Reference Number (UDPRN) remains uniquely tied to the physical delivery point regardless of changes in the address.
UPRN
A numeric code that uniquely identifies a land or property unit in the United Kingdom. The Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN) is a code that the United Kingdom government assigns and can contain a maximum of 12 digits.
