Retirement of FastForward™ Technology

 

This final rule Federal Register Notice was published today. We have revised mailing standards in the Domestic Mail Manual (DMM®) to terminate the use of FastForward™ technology as a Move Update option for commercial First-Class Mail®, First-Class Package Service™, Standard Mail®, and Parcel Select Lightweight®.

 

Mailers may begin to use the NCOALink® MPE (mail processing equipment) licensed software system at any time to meet the Move Update standards.

 

See the entire notice at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-11-02/html/2012-26697.htm.

 

The effective date is January 27, 2013.
