SAP NetWeaver Application Server - Business Address Service Postal Validation (BC-BAS-PV)

BC-BAS-PV is the postal validation interface in BC-BAS, formerly called Central Address Management. It ensures that postal data is correct while the BC-BAS-DES interface ensures data quality. Both interfaces can be used by third-party vendors, international subsidiaries, business units, and customers.

To integrate with SAP, third-party software vendors must program user exits in ABAP. This requires the ABAP Service Package for certification. For more information, please refer to ABAP add-ons certification.

This Integration Scenario is also available with SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA.

Getting Started
