July DMM Update
Postal Explorer® (pe.usps.com) is your source for up-to-date mailing standards. The Domestic Mail Manual (DMM®) is fully searchable on Postal Explorer and features fly-out menus, cross-reference links, and an extensive subject index. Today, we updated our mailing standards to capture the following changes:
Bundle Preparation - Strapping Transparency
Clarification on Processing Refund Requests for Unused Meter Indicia
We revised 604.9.3 to clarify the standards that apply to the payment of approved refund requests for unused postage evidencing system indicia.
Forwarding and Return Service for Parcel Select Mailpieces
New Authorization Process for Mailers Using Special Postage Payment Systems
We revised 705 to reflect a new authorization process for mailers wishing to mail under a special postage payment system, and to remove reference to fixed 2-year authorization periods.
New Standards for Round-Trip Mailings of Optical Discs
Adult Signature Service
Mobile Barcode Promotion
We revised 709.4.0 to add a temporary promotion for First-Class Mail cards, letters and flats, and Standard Mail letters and flats bearing two-dimensional mobile barcodes.
Our next scheduled DMM update is August 1.
