The Malta Communications Authority (MCA) has issued a public consultation entitled ‘Postcodes to be Considered as an Integral Part of a Postal Address’.
When a postcode is included in a postal address, postal sorting and delivery operations are greatly facilitated, increasing efficiency of the postal operator. Postal articles without a postcode would still be processed, however the inclusion of a postcode reduces the potential of mis-deliveries and other delivery related errors. The consultation also proposes a number of requirements on the universal provider (MaltaPost) to ensure the availability and increase awareness of postcode information.
