Post­codes to be con­sid­ered in­te­gral part of postal ad­dress

Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

The Malta Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Au­thor­ity (MCA) has launched a pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion en­ti­tled Post­codes to be Con­sid­ered as an In­te­gral Part of a Postal Ad­dress.

When a post­code is in­cluded in a postal ad­dress, postal sort­ing and de­liv­ery are greatly fa­cil­i­tated, in­creas­ing the ef­fi­ciency of the postal op­er­a­tor. Postal items not car­ry­ing a post­code will still be pro­cessed, but the in­clu­sion of a post­code re­duces the chance of mis-de­liv­er­ies and other de­liv­ery-re­lated er­rors. The con­sul­ta­tion also pro­poses a num­ber of re­quire­ments on the part of the uni­ver­sal provider (Mal­taPost) to en­sure the avail­abil­ity and in­crease aware­ness of post­code in­for­ma­tion.

The con­sul­ta­tion pa­per may be viewed on the MCA web­site at and the con­sul­ta­tion pe­riod will run un­til Fri­day, 11 Novem­ber.
