USPS delays Move Update fines

USPS announced it will delay implementation of the Standard Mail Move Update noncompliance charge from 11 May to 4 January, 2010, in a notice filed with the Postal Regulatory Commission.

USPS announced it will delay implementation of the Standard Mail Move Update noncompliance charge from 11 May to 4 January, 2010, in a notice filed with the Postal Regulatory Commission.

“Delaying implementation allows extra time to provide our Standard Mail customers with additional feedback from our new postage verification systems, but does not relieve mailers of their obligation to comply with the Move Update standard if they intend to claim automation or presort prices,” said USPS.

The new Move Update verification procedures will not be used to assess additional postage for First-Class Mail or Standard Mail at the time of mailing until January 2010. However, customers are still required to comply with the Move Update standards.

This change will reduce Standard Mail revenue over the rest of 2009 by about $4.5m, and decrease the percent increase for Standard Mail from 3.781% to 3.759%, according to USPS.
