Royal Mail have rolled out a specific licence for Public Sector Organisations with a range of benefits
As of April 2015, qualified public sector organisations licensed by Royal Mail can access data from the Postcode Address File under more relaxed terms. These terms include royalty-free access to PAF data, the ability to freely share addressing data across licensees and simplified licensing and administration procedures.
The PSL Use Terms covers the use of data from PAF for the delivery of a public sector organisation's core public task; they do not cover any use of PAF for profit-making or commercial activity.
Licensees are allowed to use PAF throughout their organisation from front end address collection on a website to back room call center operations.
Simply create an account using an email address with a domain tied to your organisation. Then phone or email us requesting to activate a public sector licence on your account. Upon verifying your organisation, we will activate your subscription and create the necessary keys on your behalf.
You will need to make your enquiry to Royal Mail directly to register your organisation for Public Sector Licensing.
You can check if you are currently licensed by looking up your organisation on Royal Mail's list of licensed organisations.
You can choose to be billed monthly or annually. Card payment (VISA or Mastercard) is accepted for monthly billing only. We only accept invoicing (via BACS) for annual billing.
Yes. We understand some organisations have special requirements. If you need higher limits or some other custom solution please get in contact and we'll try to accommodate your needs.
Soft-limited plans will not prevent your key from being used if your monthly usage has been reached. Instead, we'll just keep tabs on your average monthly usage and ask you to upgrade if you need higher limits.
Each plan comes with a maximum number of requests which can be made in a day. If you would prefer a larger or soft limit, please contact us for a custom plan.
