And now for something you’ve all been waiting for… or not. A revised “Guide to Move Update”.
According to the USPS, “the Move Update standard is a means of reducing the number of mailpieces in a commercial mailing that require forwarding, returning, or treating as waste by periodically matching a mailer’s address records with change-of-address orders maintained by the Postal Service™.”
The new version of the Guide to Move Update is now postaed on the USPS RIBBS website and can be accessed by clicking on this link: https://ribbs.usps.gov/index.cfm?page=moveupdate.
Some of the updates include the following new subsections:
- Overview of the Change of Address Process
- What is a PAF and Why is It Required?
- Non-US Mailers and NCOALink
- NCOALink MPE
The Quick Start Guide at the beginning of the Guide has also been reworked to emulate the DMM Quick Service Guide – and the Move Update Questions and Answers section was revised and clarified.
