November 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:

 

Competitive Post Office Box™ Service Features

We revised 508.4.0 to incorporate standards for Competitive Post Office Box™ service and its available enhancements and condense the standards for Post Office Box service within this section. We published this information in the October 17, 2013, Postal Bulletin.

 

Correction — Modification of Letter Tray Placement on Pallets

We revised 705.8.5.6e to modify the requirement for placement of letter trays on pallets. We published this information in the October 17, 2013, Postal Bulletin

 

First-Class Package Service-CPP Payment Option

We revised 430 to align the DMM text for the acceptable payment methods for First-Class Package Service® parcels paid at Commercial Plus™ Prices (CPP) to include PC Postage®. We published this information in the October 17, 2013, Postal Bulletin.

 

DMM Revision: Changes to Scan Based Payment Returns Procedures

We revised 505, 608, and 705 to consolidate instructions provided to customers on how to use returns labels. We published this information in the October 17, 2013, Postal Bulletin.

 

USPS Package Intercept™-Payment Option

We revised 507.5.0 to expand the payment options for commercial requests for USPS Package Intercept™ service to include Centralized Account Payment System (CAPS) trust accounts. We published this information in the October 17, 2013, Postal Bulletin

 

Our next scheduled DMM update is January 26, 2014.
