International Address Verification

A single process to standardize and validate address data across more than 220 countries.

Service Overview

While there are established rules and guidelines for ensuring quality for domestic addresses, managing international data can be very challenging. With different posts and addressing standards in each country, many organizations do little or nothing to measure or enhance the quality of their international contact data. BCC Software’s International Address Verification service gives you a single process to standardize and validate address data across more than 220 countries.

 

Our software analyzes and parses each address, and matches the address elements against the postal authority data for the destination country. If elements are missing, misspelled or incorrect, the software inserts or corrects the information, including postal codes. Once this has been done, the address is reconstructed to meet the formatting guidelines provided by each country’s postal authority.

Our International Address Verification service corrects addresses and formats them to the unique requirements of each country’s postal system and cultural standards. This is accomplished using full postal code databases directly from the source — the postal authorities of each country. These databases are updated regularly to ensure information is up to date and accurate.

Address Quality Indicator
Address Quality Codes are assigned to every address processed. The code indicates the accuracy of the address, specifies whether or not the address could be corrected, and classifies the address as deliverable, undeliverable or uncorrectable. This allows pinpoint accuracy in determining which addresses can be successfully delivered.
