New Preparation Requirements for Bundles of Mail on Pallets

 

We published a notice in today’s Federal Register to change the preparation requirements for bundles of Periodicals, Standard Mail, and Package Services flat-size mail or irregular parcels on pallets. The new standards give the conditions under which mailers must prepare an area distribution center, bulk mail center/auxiliary service facility, or sectional center facility pallet with 250 or more pounds of bundles.  These standards are effective May 11, 2006.
