The National Address Management Framework (NAMF) is an Australian national, coordinated approach to physical address management. It is a consistent, standards-based framework which will guide the process for verifying addresses and provide a standard for exchange of address data.
Provision of a more reliable and consistent interpretation of Australian postal and location addresses through the application of a nationally-consistent set of guidelines that will provide a greater degree of accuracy than is possible with current address validation systems. This will be achieved with the implementation of a NAMF-compliant solution.
NAMF makes address management and operations more efficient and accurate. It is not a supply-side strategy. Rather, it is a 'best practice' guideline focused on improving the quality of address resources used by governments at all levels.
