Postal Addressing Standards > 3 Business Addressing Standards > 32 Scope of Standardization > 323 Business–to–Business List Correction
Prior to this effort of developing specific guidelines and tables for standardization of business–to–business addresses, the application of the Postal Service AIS address improvement products and services was not always an effective means to correct business–to–business addresses- simply because of poor match rates. With the Postal Service incorporating the tables and guidelines that have emerged from this process, the AIS services are much improved for business–to–business applications. In the future, once a business–to–business address has been matched against AIS files, the address list should be corrected accordingly. Business–to–business addresses that have been standardized will contain all the necessary address elements required for Postal Service delivery as well as the most correct firm name and contract information as required for marketing purposes.
