Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Postal Service is revising Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual to SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:20 Mar 16, 2015 Jkt 235001 (DMM®) to reaffirm basic eligibility standards for Standard Mail Marketing Parcels. DATES: Effective date: April 16, 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lizbeth Dobbins at 202–268–3789, John F. Rosato at 202–268–8597, or Suzanne Newman at 202–695–0550. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Proposed Rule The Postal Service published a proposed rule (80 FR 1872–1873) on January 14, 2015, with a comment period ending February 13, 2015, to recertify the definition of Standard Mail Marketing Parcels, remind customers about the basic eligibility and address format standards, and ensure compliance with the rule that this product line not be used for fulfillment. Background: Previously the Postal Service published standards for the use of the Marketing Parcel product which limited its use to non-fulfillment activity. We affirmed that definition in Postal Bulletin 22327 (December 29, 2011), and reaffirmed it in Postal Bulletin 22406 (January 8, 2015). Specifically, Standard Mail Marketing Parcels were designed for mailers to send non-requested items or samples to potential customers. Our intent was to build a low cost prospecting vehicle; therefore, the Postal Service built in factors to minimize handling costs. One factor, the alternative addressing format, was required so that the current resident became the recipient of the mailpiece if the named addressee moved from that address. This avoided extra delivery and forwarding costs. Another factor was the specification of size restrictions, including the requirement that pieces needed to be similar in shape and weight if sent in a single mailing. Building upon the original intent, and to keep this product a viable and costeffective promotional vehicle, we are adding stronger language to the DMM on content eligibility and address format for Standard Mail Marketing Parcels. This includes clarification that all Standard Mail Marketing Parcels (regular and nonprofit) must bear an alternate addressing format and cannot be used for ‘‘fulfillment purposes’’ (i.e. the sending of items specifically purchased or requested by the customer of a mailer). The one exception to this rule is if the customer of a mailer elects to receive certain samples in connection with the purchase of an item, those samples may be sent separately from the purchased item as a Standard Mail Marketing Parcel. Moreover, the alternate address format must be on the same line as the addressee’s name, or on PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 13767 the address line directly above or below the addressee’s name as identified in DMM 602.3.4. II. Comments and Responses We received feedback from five commenters, who raised three distinct issues. (1) Statement: One commenter had no issues with the definition and wondered why it was an issue. Response: It came to the attention of the Postal Service that this product was being improperly used for fulfillment, since it was so inexpensive. (2) Statement: Four commenters stated they had no issue with the content eligibility requirement but requested that a ‘‘grace’’ period be established to give them time to adjust their business models. Response: The Postal Service appreciates that some customers may have misused the product, as designed, and appreciates the challenges of adjusting business models. Therefore the Postal Service will review requests for a ‘‘grace period’’ on a case by case basis. (3) Statement: Three commenters requested additional time to adjust their existing contract agreements. Response: As stated above, the Postal Service will review requests for a ‘‘grace period’’ on a case by case basis. The Postal Service appreciates the forthrightness of the commenters in explaining how they do business using this product. In response to these concerns, the Postal Service has determined that it is appropriate to relax the proposed rule in one respect. Since the samples will not be required to be identical in weight, if a customer elects to receive certain samples in connection with the purchase of an item, those samples may be sent separately from the purchased item as a Standard Mail Marketing Parcel as long as the transactions are linked. List of Subjects in 39 CFR Part 111 Administrative practice and procedure, Postal Service. The Postal Service adopts the following changes to Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual (DMM), incorporated by reference in the Code of Federal Regulations. See 39 CFR 111.1. Accordingly, for the reasons stated in the preamble, 39 CFR part 111 is amended as follows: PART 111—[AMENDED] 1. The authority citation for 39 CFR part 111 continues to read as follows: ■ E:\FR\FM\17MRR1.SGM 17MRR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway 
requested this deviation to facilitate the installation of new rail 
joints on the lift span. BNSF has scheduled this installation to 
coincide with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lock outages on the 
Columbia River. The Celilo Bridge crosses the Columbia River at mile 
201.2 and provides 18.8 feet of vertical clearance above Columbia River 
Datum 0.0 while in the closed position. Under normal operations, this 
bridge opens as required by 33 CFR 117.869. The deviation period is 
from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily on March 9, 2015 through March 13, 2015. 
This deviation allows the lift span of the BNSF Railway Bridge across 
the Columbia River, mile 201.2, to remain in the closed-to-navigation 
position, and need not open for maritime traffic during the periods 
listed above. The bridge shall operate in accordance to 33 CFR 117.869 
at all other times. Waterway usage on this part of the Columbia River 
includes vessels ranging from commercial tug and barge to small 
pleasure craft.
    Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed positions may 
do so at anytime. The BNSF Railway Bridge will not be able to open for 
emergencies, and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels to 
pass. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterways 
through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in 
operating schedule for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their 
transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation.
    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to 
its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective 
period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating 
regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
