Use of Ancillary Service Endorsements for Mailing Certain Types of Checks

We are withdrawing in today’s Federal Register a proposal to require ancillary service endorsements on Standard Mail pieces containing certain types of checks. We published our proposal in the Federal Register on October 27, 2004. The proposed revision was intended to protect postal customers.

We received comments from the financial industry discussing a number of safeguards for customers that reduce the incidence of fraud and the misuse of information on these checks. We have concluded that the requirements in our proposal are unnecessary.
