Requirement for First-Class Presort Discount Mail

On Mar. 29, 2009, the USPS implemented new address placement and formatting requirements for Standard Mail (including Non-Profit), Periodicals, Bound Printed Matter, Media Mail, and Library Mail flat-size pieces sent at automation, presorted, or carrier route prices. Also, the USPS will adopt related revisions for automation and presorted First-Class Mail flats.

These changes are the result of the USPS’s new Flats Sequencing System (FSS), which will automate delivery sequencing for flat-size mail. To help mailers, the USPS has published four fact sheets, which now are available on DMA’s website. In addition, DMA on July 1 hosted a virtual conference, which now is archived for members-only access.
