|Guide for use:|
When addressing an Australian location, following are the standard address data elements that may be concatenated in the Address line:
One complete identification/description of a location/site of an address can comprise one or more than one instance of address line.
Instances of address lines are commonly identified in electronic information systems as Address-line 1, Address-line 2, etc.
The format of data collection is less important than consistent use of conventions in the recording of address data. Hence, address may be collected in an unstructured manner but should ideally be stored in a structured format.
Where Address line is collected as a stand-alone item, software may be used to parse the Address line details to separate the sub-components.
Multiple Address lines may be recorded as required.
The following concatenation rules should be observed when collecting address lines addressing an Australian location.
