This instant download contains circa. 1,791,294 Postcode to International Territorial Levels (ITL), formerly Nomenclature of Units for Territorial Statistics (NUTS). The ITLs mirror the NUTS system. Postcodes within the file are updated quarterly to ensure they remain current, and our clients receive an inclusive complete refresh every three months as part of the service, for no additional fee.
Following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, a new UK-managed international statistical geography – International Territorial Levels (ITLs) – have been introduced (since 1st January 2021), replacing the former Nomenclature of Units for Territorial Statistics (NUTS) classification. ITLs align with international standards, enabling comparability both over time and internationally. To ensure continued alignment, the ITLs have been established to mirror the NUTS system. They will also follow a similar review timetable – every three years. The ITL area classification in the UK comprises current national administrative and electoral areas, and in Scotland some ITL areas comprise whole and/or part Local Enterprise Regions.
This ITL product covers every UK postcode. You’ll initially receive one compressed file (ZIP), which opens into the two Comma Separated Variable (CSV) files. (1) ITL-FLL-UK-CSV-1.csv contains 901,221 postcodes for Postcode Areas AB to LN, (2) ITL-FLL-UK-CSV-2.csv contains 890,073 records for Postcode Areas LS to ZE. CSV files will open with most software applications, including but not limited to Excel, Word, Notepad, Access, SQL etc. If you require the data supplied in another format then we will be more than happy to try and accommodate you at no extra cost.
