July DMM Update

Postal Explorer® ( 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. Yesterday we updated our mailing standards to include the following changes:

New Flats Sequencing System (FSS) Column Header Abbreviation

We revised 708.1.4 to add a new column header abbreviation. We published this information in the June 11, 2015, Postal Bulletin.

Mandatory Use of Customs Declaration PS Form 2976-B on APO/FPO/DPO Priority Mail Express

We revised 703.2.3.6 to make mandatory the use of PS Form 2976-B, Priority Mail Express International Shipping Label and Customs Form, on Priority Mail Express® items requiring a customs form to APO/FPO/DPO addresses. We published this information in the June 25, 2015, Postal Bulletin.

Our next scheduled DMM update is September 13, 2015.
