In 2020, the Geospatial Commission, working with GeoPlace, OS, the Local Government Association and Improvement Service Scotland released on open terms, UPRNs and USRNs. This announcement enabled the Open Standards Board to mandate the use of UPRNs and USRNS as the public sector standard for referencing and sharing property and street information.
Find out more about requirements and guidance on using UPRNs and USRNs from the Government Digital Service, the Central Data & Digital Office, the Geospatial Commission, Technology Code of Practice, Data Standards Authority, the National Audit Office and Regulators such as Ofgem.
The Local Government Association states that “UPRNs are key to almost everything that’s delivered or achieved by councils”.
