Business–to–business addressing standards are tailored to provide guidance on the most efficient means to output a business address onto a mailpiece. It is necessary to begin with list compilation, list maintenance, or list management to ensure that the content of the address is both accurate and complete. A variety of AIS products and services are available to assist in these processes, which have worked well for consumer lists. The business–to–business standards are intended to greatly enhance the use of these products by providing a uniform format for business address information.
