December DMM Update

 

Postal Explorer (pe.usps.com) is your complete source for domestic mailing standards. The electronic Domestic Mail Manual is fully searchable and features fly-out menus, cross-reference links, and an extensive subject index. Today we made the following updates:

 

Move Update

We expanded the Move Update requirement from First-Class Mail automation- and presort-price mailings to include all Standard Mail mailings. We also changed the minimum frequency of Move Update processing from 185 days to 95 days prior to mailing. We made these changes in 233.3.5, 243.3.9, 333.3.5, 343.3.9, 433.3.5, and 443.3.9.

 

Standard Mail With Mailers Postmark

Mailers may omit a return address when using a mailers postmark to precancel stamps on Standard Mail pieces weighing 13 ounces or less. We added this option in 202.4.2, 302.3.2, 402.3.2, 602.1.5.3, and 604.3.1.8.

 

Labeling Lists

We revised the labeling lists to reflect changes in mail processing operations.

 

Our next scheduled DMM update is January 18, and it will include all of the new shipping services prices.
