On 1 April 2014, the Address Management Unit published both the new 2015 PAF® Licence Agreements along with the new Data Supply Agreement. To give the market time to prepare for transitioning to new terms, the licences will be implemented in April 2015.

You can view all of the Licence Agreements along with supporting information within the PAF® Licensing Centre.
