Unpaid and Shortpaid IBI Postage Meter and PC Postage Products 

 

On November 18, 2009 the Federal Register published our proposed rule for new mailing standards to implement revenue assurance procedures for information-based indicia (IBI) postage generated from postage meters, Click-N-Ship®, and PC Postage® products. 

 

Deficiencies in postage caused by counterfeiting, replicating, duplicating, falsifying, or otherwise modifying the IBI labels result in a loss of revenue for the Postal Service™. We will use mail processing equipment and ancillary information systems to detect and capture data for mailpieces with unpaid or shortpaid postage. 

 

We previously posted our advance copy of this proposed rule on Postal Explorer® at pe.usps.com. We encourage customers to review and comment before December 18, 2009 by writing to the Manager of Mailing Standards, U.S. Postal Service, 475 L'Enfant Plaza SW, Room 3436, Washington, DC 20260-3436.
