Permanent Committee on Addressing

The objectives of this committee are to provide leadership in assigning addresses, naming of roads, and defining localities.  This includes setting related standards, developing addressing guidelines, and promoting systems for the efficient interchange and sharing of address data. The committee includes jurisdictional and postal representation, and members work closely with the addressing authorities in the local government sector. The Permanent Committee on Addressing was formed following the completion and publication of the Australia and New Zealand Rural and Urban Addressing Standard (AS/NZS 4819:2011) by the Street Addressing Special Interest Group. That group was formed in 2008 to undertake a routine review of the Standard, which had been developed by a previous ICSM Working Group – SAWG.
