FSS Standards Coming January 2nd

Today, the Postal Bulletin published the upcoming DMM® standards for the optional preparation of flat-sized mailpieces in Flats Sequencing System (FSS) zones.

These standards were previously provided in the Federal Register notice dated August 23, 2010 (75 FR 51668-51671), and were communicated to the mailing industry in a Postal Bulletin advance notice on September 23, 2010 (PB 22294).

Mailers may begin preparing their mailings in accordance with these new standards on the effective date of January 2, 2011, but are advised that the Postal Service™ intends to provide additional modifications to the standards in the February 2011 DMM update.
