New USPS Address Quality Standards

Now is the time for USPS mailers to review and comment on the proposed USPS Address Quality Standards. Although this information does not directly pertain to our current mailing products, we are dedicated to keeping mailers better informed.

This summary from the Federal Register:

Our proposal includes the following changes related to move update processing:

(1) Extending the Move Update requirement to all Standard Mail and

(2) reducing the window for move update processing of names and addresses
used for mailings of discounted First-Class Mail from 185 days to 95 days prior
to mailing. The revised timeframe would apply to all pieces in Standard Mail mailings.

This from the DMM Advisory, an alert email sent by the Postal Service:
The Office of the Federal Register published our notice for comment [PDF] | [TXT] today that we announced last week proposing new standards for address quality. We encourage mailers to review and comment on our proposal before June 21.
