Certified Mode Verification for United States Addresses

Certified Mode Verification for United States Addresses

To verify United States addresses in certified mode, install the United States
Cxx
databases. The
Cxx
databases are numbered
USA_ADV_VRF_C01_000_6_1_0.MD6
through
USA_ADV_VRF_C07_000_6_1_0.MD6
. The databases enable the address verification process to analyze and update different aspects of the address according to the different USPS postal criteria. Add the licenses for the files.
Consider the following rules and guidelines for certified verification in the United States:
  • Certified mode verification of United States addresses is available only to customers in the United States.
  • The CASS certification files comply with the SHA-256 standard.
  • The DPV database has information that helps you check whether a ZIP+4 coded address is in the USPS delivery file as a known address record. You can use the DPV product to confirm known USPS addresses and to identify potential addressing issues that might affect delivery.
    Address Verification can also add ZIP+4 Codes to addresses in batch and interactive mode. Address Verification reads the codes from the
    USA_ADV_VRF_BIA_000_6_1_0.MD6
    database in batch and interactive modes.
  • Informatica Address Verification sends records with input suite data that does not match the ZIP+4 Code reference data thorough the SuiteLink process. If Address Verification finds a match for such addresses with SuiteLink, Address Verification retains the input suite data in the residue component and writes the correct suite data on the second postal delivery address line. The USPS requires that the address verification operation retains the non-matching input data.
