A postcode system assigns a unique alphanumeric code to every dwelling entity in the country, taking into consideration its unique use (residential, commercial, medicare, or educational) and geographical location.

The 2013 National Addressing Policy demanded that the existing 6-digit numeric National Postcode be extended to enhance the granularity of the postcode. The extended postcode framework is a collaboration between NPC and NIPOST.
