Uniform Symbol Description (USD)  - Public Review

The Uniform Symbol Description - KIX (PostNL Klant IndeX code), developed by the AIM Technical Symbology Committee (TSC), is now available for a 30-day public review.

The USD KIX symbol, otherwise referred to as KIX, is a height-modulated bar code that encodes the 10 digits and 26 letters of the English alphabet. The name, KIX, is derived from the Dutch “Klant IndeX” (Client Index). 
The KIX symbol encodes the postcode and house number information for mail addresses in the Netherlands. It is a compact representation of the destination address used for automatic sorting of mail.


Each character consists of a central timing track with four bars and two ascending and two descending bars. There are no start or stop characters, so a symbol must be scanned in the proper orientation for correct results. The data structure of a decoded symbol must be examined to ensure that the symbol was scanned in the proper direction.


Download this excel workbook to view the created figures for this postal code.  Note: The KIX font has to be installed on your computer to make modifications.


Comments can be submitted using the AIM Comment Template.


 NOTE:  This is a public review document.  The public review ends September 7th, 2017.
