Local Administrative Units

Add support to local administrative areas, such as municipalities. Two new fields are added to the Partners model: LAU1 and LAU2.

It is compatible with the Eurostat NUTSLAU structure.

  • The upper LAU level (LAU level 1, formerly NUTS level 4) is defined for most, but not all of the countries.
  • The lower LAU level (LAU level 2, formerly NUTS level 5) consists of municipalities or equivalent units in the 28 EU Member States.

No data is provided by this module. Country specific data should be provided by localization modules.


The Local Administrative Units table setup can be done under Sales > Configuration > Address Book


Only Administrator can manage LAUs, but any registered user can read them, in order to allow to assign them to Partners.
