Copyright and source information

The Postcode Directories must always be acknowledged and cited in the correct format and the copyright, which is owned by the Crown, recognised. The following statement must appear in a prominent position each time the data is published: "© Crown Copyright 2006 Source: National Statistics / Ordnance Survey Extracts are Crown Copyright and may only be reproduced by permission." Where it may not be practical to use the full statement where there is limited space, such as maps, the first two lines of the copyright statement can be used instead.
