Address Correction Notices for Letters and Flats Qualifying for Full-Service Intelligent Mail and Changes to Move Update Standards

Today the Federal Register published our proposed rule to change the timeframe for providing address correction without charge for First-Class Mail®, Standard Mail®, and Bound Printed Matter (BPM) pieces that are eligible for Full-Service Intelligent Mail® prices.

Our proposal states that address correction notices would be provided for the classes of mail noted above, without charge, for no longer than 95 days after the first notice is made available. This is in alignment with the current Move Update timeframe.

Customers are encouraged to respond on or before October 21, 2010.

The proposed rule can be viewed on the Postal Explorer® website at by clicking on “Federal Register Notices” in the left frame.
