Can DataSlave validate data against the UK Postcode file?

DataSlave will check the format of data against that allowed for a UK postcode. The test is very comprehensive and runs very quickly. Indeed DataSlave will check more than 10 national postcodes including, US, UK, Australian, Canadian, EU and many others.

See more information on DataSlave.

DataSlave does not, today, check the address against the postcode using the PAF. We do intend to add this feature. Because of the licensing to the Post Office there will be a small charge per line tested. Is this a feature that will be of interest and one you would pay for?

The format test will be good enough for our immediate requirements, but we will be interested in the full check later.

I understand that this will be charged for, but as long as the rates are reasonable that will be okay.
