Eircodes are assigned to new property addresses using a valid postal address and verified geo-locations. An Post collects information on new and existing buildings, as well as changes to existing addresses and Ordnance Survey Ireland provides the geo-locations for these buildings. An Post GeoDirectory issue a new release of the GeoDirectory database file on a quarterly basis to Capita Business Support Services Ireland, trading as Eircode, in accordance with their licence agreement.
Each new postal address assigned an Eircode is published on the free to use Eircode Finder website, a notification letter is issued to the property occupant containing the Eircode of that address and an updated Eircode Database is provided to licenced businesses for their use.
Eircode have advised my officials that the individuals concerned address (details supplied) has been assigned an Eircode and is now published on the Eircode Finder website. Eircode have also advised my officials that a member of their customer service team has been in contact with the individuals concerned and that a notification letter has been issued with the Eircode.
Eircode have informed my Department that 102,700 property addresses have been assigned an Eircode since the launch in 2015.
