New System

The image below is an explanation of the 12-digit system.

Reading New Parcel Numbers

Below is a description of the new parcel numbers and how to read them.

  • Example: APN 15-0392-06
    • The first two numbers are the 15
      • (Before, it was three numbers (015))
    • The next set of numbers represent the page and block. It has increased from three numbers to four. (0392)
      • This means page 39, which allows us to go to 999 pages before having to split into a new book. The block is 392.
    • The final two digits are the parcel number, represented by being encased in a small circle on the page. (06)

Book 1 has been changed to Book 17. The new numbering caused a conflict between books 1 and 10.

If you need a cross reference sheet for converting from the 12 digit number to the new 8 digit number, this spreadsheet (XLS) should help.
