ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Postal Service will revise Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual (DMM®) to revise pricing and eligibility standards for commercial First-Class Mail® parcels associated with the January 2011 Postal Service filing with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) for Mailing Services. We also will implement changes previously proposed to eliminate the sale of Standard Mail® stamped envelopes. DATES: Effective April 17, 2011. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Marc McCrery at 202–268–2704 or Bill Chatfield at 202–268–7278. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 9, 2010, the Postal Service published a Federal Register proposed rule, New Standards for Domestic Mailing Services (75 FR 39477–39492), based on a previous price filing with the PRC that was not implemented. In that proposal, we included the elimination of Standard Mail (including nonprofit) stamped envelopes. We received no comments on that proposal or on the proposal to establish a separate commercial singlepiece price for certain First-Class Mail parcels. SUMMARY: First-Class Mail Parcels The Postal Service will establish a separate price category for commercial single-piece First-Class Mail parcels. Currently, mailers who presort a minimum of 500 First-Class Mail parcels pay single-piece prices for the residual portion of a presorted mailing after sorting to all required area distribution centers (ADCs). We also currently allow non-presort mailers access to those prices, with no volume minimum per mailing. Commercial Base Mailers will be able to pay commercial single-piece First-Class Mail prices for their parcels when they pay postage by any of the following three methods: Permit imprint, informationbased indicia (IBI) meters, or PC Postage®. Parcels with IBI-metered postage or PC postage, claiming a presorted price or the new commercial single-piece parcel price, must be marked ‘‘CommercialBasePrice’’ in addition to the First-Class Mail marking. Presorted parcels also must be marked PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 ‘‘Presorted.’’ The ‘‘CommercialBasePrice’’ marking may be either within or directly below the indicia area. Except for parcels entered at the new commercial plus prices, First-Class Mail items cannot exceed 13 ounces. Commercial Plus The Postal Service also introduces a new price category under First-Class Mail, commercial plus pricing for FirstClass Mail, designed for parcels over 13 ounces but less than 16 ounces. The commercial plus pricing option is established for First-Class Mail customers who pay postage with permit imprint, meet specific mailing requirements, and whose account volume exceeds a minimum threshold. All First-Class Mail parcels mailed at commercial plus prices must be marked ‘‘CommercialPlusPrice.’’ First-Class Mail commercial plus parcels must be machinable parcels that weigh more than 13 ounces but less than 16 ounces. Qualifying mailers also will have the option to pay commercial plus parcel prices for machinable parcels weighing less than 13 ounces. (with a minimum weight of 3.5 ounces the minimum for machinable parcels). A flat commercial plus price is charged at a single-piece price and each of the following presorted price levels: 5-digit, 3-digit, and ADC. Commercial plus parcels may be commingled with other First-Class Mail parcels, subject to adequate documentation. First-Class Mail commercial plus parcel prices will be available for customers who: • Establish a customer commitment agreement with the Postal Service to mail more than 5,000 First-Class Mail machinable parcels at commercial plus prices in a calendar year. • Pay for postage using a permit imprint. • Enter a minimum of 500 pieces of mail for each presorted mailing or a minimum of 200 pieces or 50 pounds of mail for each single-piece mailing. • Use the Electronic Verification System (eVS®) or submit an electronic postage statement with a computerized manifest. Additionally, permit holders using Merchandise Return Service (MRS) for First-Class Mail machinable parcels will be eligible for commercial plus parcel prices if the total of their First-Class Mail MRS and outgoing volume meet the minimum volume commitment. Discontinuation of Standard Mail Stamped Envelopes Standard Mail (including nonprofit) stamped envelopes will no longer be available for purchase. Sales of Standard Mail envelopes have been declining E:\FR\FM\27JAR1.SGM 27JAR1
