Review and new outline for AS/NZS 4819 Rural and Urban Addressing

June 29, 2011

AS/NZS 4819

The review of the Australian and New Zealand Standard for Street addressing is being sponsored by ICSM, with the review being overseen by the AS/NZS4819 Street Addressing Special Interest Group (SASIG), including:

EMSINA a group of spatial practitioners in emergency management.

Naming & Addressing authorities from each State and Territory & New Zealand, including:

  • Office of Geographic Names, Victoria
  • Spatial Information Infrastructure, DSE Victoria
  • Landgate NSW
  • Land and Property Information NSW
  • LINZ
  • Office of Nomenclature Board, Tasmania
  • ACT Government

Department for Transport, Energy and Infrastructure

Department of Education NSW

Australia Post & New Zealand Post

DEEWR , Geoscience AustraliaPSMA Australia Ltd, Office of Spatial Data Management (OSDM)

The SASIG have completely rewritten the AS/NZS 4819 with the aim of making the document more user-friendly and accessible. Although still in Draft until released (hopefully November 2011) the main structure has been established.

The Goal: to provide instructions for assigning addresses that can be readily and unambiguously identified and located.

5 key objectives guided the writing proces

Localities enable addresses to be uniquely and clearly identified.

Assigned names for roads or other primary means of access enable addresses to be readily and uniquely identified

Assigned address numbering enables address sites to be readily located

Signage enables assigned addresses to be readily identified and located

Address information enables sites to be readily located

Key benefits

Provides users with requirements for assigning addresses, naming roads and defining localities

Enables creation of addresses suitable for inclusion in Geocoded National Address File  (G-NAF)

Improved provision of services by stakeholders who utilise addresses
