Main Features of this Product

The URPN is contained within all AddressBase products. This unique identifier is
allocated by the Local Authorities and has been used in their systems for over 10 years.
The URPN stays with an address for its lifecycle and is never re-used; it is used by
Government, Regulators and other commercial customers.

The product follows the life cycle of a PAF record. If a record is inserted, updated
or deleted in PAF these changes are reflected in AddressBase. Similarly if the record
is deleted by a Local Authority custodian the record is removed from the product.

The data is provided in a flat file structure making iti easy to upload and analyse.

There is also a primary level of classification which allows users to easily differentiate
between residential and commercial dwellings
