New Address Quality Standards for First-Class Mail and Standard Mail

 

We published a notice for comment [PDF] | [HTML] on our Web site today proposing new standards for address quality. Our proposal would extend the Move Update requirement to all Standard Mail pieces and would require mailers to perform Move Update processing for discounted First-Class Mail and Standard Mail no more than 95 days prior to mailing. Move Update is the process for updating names and addresses in a mailing, and our revised standards will help ensure quality addressing on mailpieces and timely delivery to intended recipients. We will publish this notice in both the online and print Federal Register early next week.
