We revised various sections of the DMM to reflect changes to some of the prices for Priority Mail® and the mailing standards for Premium Forwarding Service Commercial™ competitive products. We published this information in the August 7, 2014, Postal Bulletin.

eDoc Volume Criteria for Single-Piece First-Class Mail

We revised 604.5.1 to correct the DMM language permitting less than the current minimum volume for permit imprint mailings when mailers submit electronic postage statements and piece-level barcode information for single-piece First-Class Mail® letters. We published this information in the August 21, 2014, Postal Bulletin.
