Vote 29 - Communications, Energy and Natural Resources
Chapter 13 - The Development of Eircode, the National Postcode System

Mr. Mark Griffin:

It depends on the number of users. For the ECAF, it is €60 per user for from one to 83 users. For 84 users and above, it is a single fee of €5,000. The ECAD, is more expensive because it provides more value and is the one used for finding addresses. It provides the Eircode, the address, the geo co-ordinates and the aliases. The cost for from one to ten users is €180 per user, which would amount to €1,800 for ten users.
