Eligibility Requirements for Standard Mail
Federal Register, October 27, 2004, Page 62578-62583
U.S. Postal Service
SUMMARY: In this final rule the Postal Service adopts an amendment to Domestic Mail Manual (DMM) standards concerning material eligible for mailing at Standard Mail postage rates. The revised standards clarify the circumstances in which mail containing ``personal'' information may be eligible for Standard Mail, rather than First-Class Mail, rates. The amendment also reorganizes and renumbers other standards for First-Class Mail and Standard Mail to better describe the service provided under each class.
Effective date is June 1, 2005
