Royal Mail's Postcode Address File (PAF) is a database of more than 30 million postal delivery addresses and 1.8 million Postcodes. End-Users can license the use of PAF data directly from Royal Mail, on standard licensing terms, or via a Solutions Provider. End-Users are required to return licence fees to Royal Mail for their use of the PAF data.
