Address Matching Approval System (AMAS)
Check your address matching software
The Address Matching Approval System (AMAS) is the certification program we use to measure the accuracy of address matching software.
AMAS confirms that your address matching software is approved to:
- correct and match addresses against the Australia Post Postal Address File (PAF) - the PAF is a database of Australian postal addresses within our delivery network, and it usually comes with your AMAS software
- add a unique Delivery Point Identifier (DPID) to each address record in order to generate a barcode for your mail.
Buying AMAS-approved software
You can buy AMAS-approved software from any company that has a license to supply it. View our list of software providers.
