Good News as Data Ireland Receives Eircode Accredited Encoder Status

Data Ireland is delighted to announce that it has successfully undertaken the Eircode providers additional accreditation programme. This programme is designed to ensure a high level of matching and accuracy appending Eircodes to address records.


Eircode is Ireland’s smart postcode system. Unlike other countries where postcodes define a cluster or group of addresses, a unique Eircode is assigned to each residential and business address.

Since its launch in 2015 we have fully integrated Eircode into all our systems. Our recent accreditation as an Eircode Encoder simply rubber-stamps what our clients have known for many years – that we are the primary provider of Irish addressing solutions.

Our software solutions have been developed to resolve the many common data issues observed with Irish addresses. Issues such as frequent misspellings, alias addresses, vanity place names and Irish language addresses. Twenty years of address matching has allowed us to hone our matching algorithms to maximise their accuracy.

Eircodes are integrated into our many addressing solutions:

  • PrecisionAddress. Our real-time address verification web service.
  • Batch addresses validation bureau service.
  • PrecisionSort. Data coding to avail of postage discounts.
  • Consumer & Business Prospect mailing lists.
