Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking — Implementation of Full-Service Intelligent Mail Required for Automation Prices

 

Our Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to encourage Full-Service Intelligent Mail barcode (IMb ®) adoption by making it a requirement for automation rates, beginning in January 2014, appears in today's Federal Register.

 

We are very interested in your feedback, which can be mailed or delivered to Manager, Product Classification, U.S. Postal Service, 475 L’Enfant Plaza SW, Room 4446, Washington DC 20260-5015 or emailed to mailingstandards@usps.gov with the subject line “Full-Service January 2014.” You may inspect and photocopy all written comments at USPS® Headquarters Library, 475 L'Enfant Plaza SW, 11th Floor N, Washington DC between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, by appointment only, arranged in advance by calling 1-202-268-2906. Comments are due no later than June 4, 2012.

 

The Federal Register notice provides advance information to help mailers prepare and plan for the transition to Full-Service (use of unique Intelligent Mail barcodes applied to letters, postcards, flats, trays, sacks, and containers such as pallets and submission of electronic mailing documentation). Mailers are encouraged to provide information about any possible challenges as well as costs and benefits of moving to Full-Service.
