NSW Addressing polices and guidelines

In response to requirements from NSW Stakeholders the GNB in 2013 commenced working with the NSW CPAS Program in consultation with NSW stakeholders to develop a suite of policies and guidelines.

The policies and guidelines were required to clarify roles and responsibilities related to addressing, streamline addressing processes and ensure a consistent, quality and service-driven approach to address management in NSW.

After extensive consultation, the final documents outlined below were endorsed by the GNB on 31 March 2015.
