Consultation on a new addressing profile for NZ developed from the ISO-19160-1.2015 standard.

The addressing profile is aimed at those managing or working with address data in territorial authorities, central government, and the private sector. The profile aims to standardise address data across NZ so that it can be openly shared and used in addressing systems and applications.
