413 Rulings

Where doubt exists about mailability of any article that is considered to be restricted matter, a request for a ruling may be made to the local postmaster (see 215.3).

When the qualification of an addressee to receive restricted matter within the conditions in this chapter is in question, a Postmaster may require the mailer or addressee to furnish a written explanation of the addressee’s eligibility and/or the item’s mailability. If the explanation is not satisfactory or when uncertainty remains, the postmaster may forward the explanation along with a statement of the facts to the PCSC for a ruling.
