It has been talked about for years but the introduction of post codes for all Irish addresses is set to begin in Spring 2015.
The new post codes are unique 7 character codes for each address and are called Eircodes. They will have a 3 digital routing key and a 4 digit unique identifier like this sample.
The Eircode website says;
“The Eircodes are much more than just a postcode. It is a smart location code for all Irish addresses. It will help the public, businesses and public bodies to locate every individual address in the State. Eircodes will bring many benefits to the daily lives of people, householders and businesses. Currently, around 35% of addresses – mainly in rural areas – do not have a unique name or number in their address. With Eircodes, delivery of services and goods will be much easier and quicker to these addresses.”
Sounds great doesn’t it! So what will this mean for Irish businesses? Well, as the Eircodes won’t be issued until Spring 2015, it is essential to start getting ready for this change now.
As all of your business stationary will need to include your new Eircode, under your contact information, you should start planning your print stock now. This will make sure that you don’t over order items that you won’t be able to use when the Eircodes are launched next year.
