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. On October 6 we updated our mailing standards to include the following changes:

 

Consolidation of Carrier Route Accuracy Standards

We revised 243, 343, 363, 443, 463, and 707 to consolidate carrier route accuracy standards for Standard Mail®, Bound Printed Matter, and Periodicals carrier route mail into a new section, DMM 602.7.0. We published this information in the September 19, 2013, Postal Bulletin.

 

Modification of Letter Tray Placement on Pallets

We revised 705.8.5.6 to modify the requirement for placement of letter trays on pallets. We published this information in the September 19, 2013, Postal Bulletin.

 

Modification of Price Eligibility for Flats with Optical Discs

We revised 333.2.7 to modify the price eligibility for First-Class Mail® flat-size pieces that are part of round-trip mailings containing optical discs. We published this information in the September 19, 2013, Postal Bulletin.

 

Tray Label Distribution System Update — Customer Label Distribution System (CLDS)

We revised 708.6.0 to update the standards for the tray label distribution system. We published this information in the September 19, 2013, Postal Bulletin.

 

Balloting Materials Postage

We revised 703.8.0 require that the balloting materials for all types of ballots, whether disseminated in hardcopy or electronically, must indicate in a prominent location the proper amount of First-Class Mail postage that must be paid. We published this information in the September 5, 2013, Postal Bulletin.

 

DMM Revision: U.S. Postal Service® Registered Trademarks

We revised 608.7.0 to update the Postal Service™ registered trademarks used throughout the DMM. We published this information in the September 5, 2013, Postal Bulletin.

 

Modification of Return Address Requirement for Periodicals Publications

We revised 602.1.5.3 to modify the requirement for a return address on a Periodicals publication in any wrapper to apply to publications that are in an opaque wrapper. We published this information in the September 5, 2013, Postal Bulletin.

 

Our next scheduled DMM update is November 4, 2013.
