July DMM Update

 

Postal Explorer (pe.usps.com) is your source for up-to-date mailing standards. The Domestic Mail Manual is fully searchable on Postal Explorer and features fly-out menus, cross-reference links, and an extensive subject index. We updated our mailing standards with the following changes:

 

Arizona District ZIP Codes Realigned to Include "851" 3-Digit Service Area
We revised 246.3.1, 346.3.1, 366.4.1, 446.3.1, 453.3.1.3, 466.4.4, 608.8.4.1, 705.6.2.3, and 705.8.13.1 to realign ZIP Code boundaries and establish new ZIP Codes for the Arizona District.

 

Confirmation Services/eVS Barcoded Label Precertification Program
We revised 503.9.4.3 and 503.10.4.4 to include a new Confirmation Services/eVS Barcoded Label Precertification Program.

 

Standard Mail Volume Incentive Program (aka Summer Sale)
We added 709.2.0 which describes the Standard Mail Volume Incentive Program. Commonly known as the "Summer Sale," the Standard Mail Volume Incentive Program is a volume incentive program for qualified high-volume mailers of commercial or Nonprofit Standard Mail letters and flats mailed between July 1, 2009 and September 30, 2009. The program provides a 30 percent credit, to participating mailers, for qualifying volume exceeding their USPS-determined threshold level.

 

Extended Enrollment Period for the Standard Mail Saturation Mail Volume Incentive Program
We revised 243.1.7.2 and 343.1.6.2 to extend the enrollment period for participation in the Saturation Mail Volume Incentive Program to August 1, 2009.

 

Labeling List Changes
We revised Labeling List L010 to reflect changes in mail processing operations.

 

Our next scheduled DMM update is August 3.
