Shortpaid and Unpaid IBI Postage and Shortpaid Express Mail Postage

This week we posted a final rule Federal Register that implements revenue protection procedures for mailpieces entered with shortpaid and unpaid Information Based Indicia (IBI) postage and for shortpaid Express Mail® service postage.

The new process provides corrective measures to recover revenue deficiencies from mailpieces with shortpaid and unpaid postage generated by the following postage evidencing systems: Click-N-Ship®, IBI postage meters, and PC Postage® products.

The entire final rule can be viewed on the Postal Explorer® website by clicking “Federal Register Notices” in the left blue navigation panel. The effective date is September 6, 2011.
