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. Yesterday we updated our mailing standards to capture the R2006-1 pricing change for Periodicals Mail, and the following additional changes:
AADC Letter Trays on SCF Pallets
We revised 246.3.0, 705.8.10, and 707.29.3.2 to allow mailers to place automation area distribution center (AADC) trays of Periodicals and Standard Mail letters on sectional center facility (SCF) pallets.
Mailing Lists for Automation Mailings
We revised 708.3.0 to allow mailers to use a new process, Direct Delivery Point Validation or "DirectDPV," as a valid coding method to qualify address lists for use in automation rate mailings.
Precancelation Handstamps and Electroplates
We revised 604.3.0 to discontinue use of all USPS precancelation handstamps and precancelation electroplates.
We added 608.2.4 to require customs declarations on all Priority Mail pieces weighing 16 ounces or more sent to or from U.S. territories.
Our next DMM update is scheduled for August 2.
