October 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. Today we updated our mailing standards to capture the following changes:

 

New Option for Obtaining Pickup on Demand Service
We revised
507.6.0 to provide a no-fee option for customers that meet minimum volume threshold requirements of seven pieces for reoccurring Pickup on Demand service for Express Mail®, Priority Mail®, Global Express Guaranteed®, Express Mail International® and Priority Mail International® mail items.

 

Mailing of Cigarettes and Smokeless Tobacco Products to APO/FPO/DPO Destination Addresses
We revised
503.9.0 and 601.11.0 to permit the mailing of cigarettes and smokeless tobacco to APO/FPO/DPO destination addresses via Express Mail Military Service or Priority Mail service with Delivery Confirmation™.

 

Labeling Lists
We revised labeling lists
L001, L002, L003, L004, L005, L007, L008, L009, L011, L201, L601, L605, L606, L607, and L801 to reflect changes in mail processing operations.

 

Our next scheduled DMM update is November 1.
