Código Postal Argentino
The Código Postal Argentino , CPA for short , has been the eight-digit and alphanumeric scheme for postal codes in Argentina since 1998 . The CPA was decided by the Secretaría de Comunicaciones with resolution 1368/98. It is mandatory to use it from the beginning of April 1999.
Composition of the CPA
A CPA is divided into three parts:
- a letter that stands for the province or the capital district,
- four digits that reflect the city, town or district and
- three letters that identify a single block and the street.
The introductory letter corresponds to the code provided in ISO 3166-2: AR . The four digits largely correspond to the Argentine postal code system valid until 1998. A single CPA was assigned to locations with fewer than 500 residents.
The new CPA has not yet been fully implemented in Argentina; the old four-digit postcodes are often still used.
When using the CPA, it is usually placed in a separate line under the street or apartment name, but above the location. The CPA must be written without a prefix, the letters in the CPA as uppercase and the individual parts of the CPA without being separated by hyphens or spaces.
