Updated Eligibility Standards for Standard Mail

The new standards clarifying when mail containing "personal" information may be eligible for Standard Mail rates went into effect on June 1. DMM 300 has been updated to reflect the change. DMM 300 is available via Postal Explorer at pe.usps.com; click on DMM Summary of Changes to view the revisions.

Please direct any questions regarding Standard Mail eligibility to your local Post Office or business mail entry unit.

The Postal Service is providing the following "decision tree" as an aid to evaluate whether a mailpiece is eligible as Standard Mail or is required to be sent as First-Class Mail.
