New Mailing Standards for Domestic Mailing Services

 

Yesterday the Federal Register published the final rule to revise domestic pricing and eligibility standards associated with the April 17, 2011, Mailing Services price change.

 

Revisions include the introduction of commercial base and commercial plus pricing for First-Class Mail® parcels. We also will implement changes previously proposed to eliminate the sale of Standard Mail® (including nonprofit) stamped envelopes. Further, with this final rule, the Postal Service revises the standards for determining single-piece weights for flats mailed at Bound Printed Matter, Media Mail®, and Library Mail prices.

 

The final rule can be viewed on the Postal Explorer® website at pe.usps.com by clicking on “Federal Register Notices” in the left frame.
