DMM Advisory: September DMM® Update

Postal Explorer® (pe.usps.com) 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. Today, we updated our mailing standards to include the following changes:

Extra Service and Refund Clarifications

We revised 503.3.0 to clarify the services available under Certified Mail. We also revised 604.9.2 and 604.9.5 to clarify refund standards and delete redundant text. We published this information in the August 3, 2017, Postal Bulletin.

Merchandise Return Service

We revised 505.3.1.5, items a and b, for consistency, and revised item b to update the account volume required for Priority Mail Commercial Plus prices. We also revised the introductory text in 505.3.7.3 for clarity, and revised item 505.3.7.3b to update the account volume required for Priority Mail Commercial Plus cubic prices. We published this information in the August 3, 2017, Postal Bulletin.

Pallet Label

We revised various sections of the DMM to standardize terminology in reference to pallet labels. For consistency with the terminology used for sacks and trays, we revised the DMM to use the term “label” exclusively and remove all references to “placard.” We published this information in the August 3, 2017, Postal Bulletin.

Return Receipt Service

We revised 503.Exhibit 1.4.1, to clarify the prerequisites when a mailer requests to use return receipt service. We published this information in the August 3, 2017, Postal Bulletin.

 

Our next scheduled DMM update is October 2, 2017.
