New ACS™ Services

 

The United States Postal Service will introduce new ACS™ services on July 28, 2013, providing new options to mailers so that they can effectively manage their Undeliverable As Addressed (UAA) mail. The common feature of these additional services is that an ACS record will be provided for returned items.

 

First-Class Mail®:  Return Service Requested Option 2 and Temp-Return Service Requested Option 2

 

Standard Mail®:  Address Service Requested Option 2 and Return Service Requested Option 2

 

Bound Printed Matter: Address Service Requested Option 2 and Return Service Requested Option 2

 

These new services are available for all ACS formats.

 

This document on RIBBS https://ribbs.usps.gov/.../DSTIDCommunicationLetter.pdf provides complete descriptions and details of the new options that will be available July 28. The document also provides advance information on the next phase, effective January 2014, which further enhances mailing flexibility by expanding the STID table so each existing service option will have its own STID.
