Format of CEP Brazil

The CEP started in 1972 with just five numbers. But in 1992, it was expanded to eight numbers to make locations more precise. The format is “nnnnn-nnn”, where the first five numbers are followed by a hyphen and then three more numbers. Each number in the first part stands for a different area, like a region or sector. The last three numbers help with distribution.

Big cities with lots of people have a CEP for every public place and some private places too, like big buildings and condos. Small towns have a general 5-number code that ends with -000.

History of CEP Brazil

The Brazilian Post and Telegraph Corporation made the CEP in May 1971. It started with just five numbers. The system was made to help sort and deliver mail, so the postal service could get letters and packages to the right place quickly and easily.

In May 1992, the Brazilian postal code changed to eight numbers to make locations more precise. This change was a big moment in the history of the CEP.

Implementation of CEP Brazil

The CEP has really helped make mail delivery in Brazil more efficient. The full postal code database, called DNE, has more than 900,000 codes. It includes streets, neighborhoods, cities, and state names. At first, it was free on the Brazilian post office website. But after some improvements, it’s now a paid service called e-DNE.

Brazil was split into ten postal areas for coding. This was done based on things like how much each state was growing and developing. The CEPs were given out starting from the state of São Paulo and going counter-clockwise.

When giving out CEPs, the Correios group cities, districts, and villages into areas. Most of these areas are split into urban and rural parts. Cities with just one CEP use the same code for mail going to rural areas. But for cities with codes for specific streets that include rural areas, a special CEP is used.
