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 and DMM 601.11.4 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.
