There are several areas within Address Validation that are incorrect or unclear in MEF 79. The purpose of this amendment is to correct areas that are incorrect and clarify the areas that are unclear


MEF 79 does not currently define address validation for Geographic Point. This amendment adds requirements to support Address Validation for Geographic Point and Geographic Address Identifier. To provide needed clarification, an appendix containing examples of different situations and how Address Validation is performed in those situations will be added. In addition, a more complete explanation of the Address Validation and Site Retrieval processes is added to the document.
