October DMM Update

 

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

 

Parcel Return Service—Clarifications

We revised 507.13.0 to clarify standards regarding Parcel Return Service (PRS).

 

2010 Standard Mail Incentive Program Removal

We revised 709 by removing section 2.0, Standard Mail Incentive Program.

 

Service Standards for Express Mail Military Service (EMMS)

We revised 703.2.0 which clarifies the USPS service commitment for Express Mail items sent to and from APO/FPO and DPO destinations.

 

First-Class Package Service

We revised 401, 402, 433, 434, 435, 436, 503, 507, 602, 705, and 708 to introduce First-Class Package Service, which replaces and removes First-Class Mail commercial base and commercial plus parcels from the market-dominant product offering.

 

Our next scheduled DMM update is November 7.
