20.0 eInduction Option

20.1 Description

    Electronic Induction (eInduction) is an electronic alternative to 
using the following paper PS Forms 8125, 8125C, 8125CD, and 8017 for 
all containers entered at the dock of a processing facility or claiming 
a Destination Delivery Unit (DDU) discount. eInduction uses Intelligent 
Mail container barcode (IMcb) scans to determine container payment and 
delivery status, and verifies payment and entry location by matching 
IMcb scan data to electronic documentation (eDoc) information. 
Containers are eligible for eInduction at certain designated 
facilities. Additional information, including information regarding 
verification and associated assessments, is provided in Publication 
6850, Publication for Streamlined Mail Acceptance for Letters and 
Flats, at https://postalpro.usps.com/node/581.

eInduction program.

Bound Printed Matter presorted or carrier route barcoded flats and 
packages are eligible for eInduction. All containers entered under 
eInduction must:
    a. Be labeled with a USPS placard and a unique Intelligent Mail 
container barcode. All required pallets and similar containers (such as 
all-purpose containers, hampers, and gaylords) and all containers 
prepared under 8.0 must display container placards that include 
accurately encoded Intelligent Mail container barcodes (IMcb) as 
described in 708.6.6. Mailing documentation must indicate each 
container participating in eInduction. b. Be part of a mailing using an 
approved electronic method to transmit a postage statement and mailing 
documentation to the PostalOne! system.
    c. Not include containers included on paper PS Forms 8125/8017.
    d. Be included on a scheduled FAST appointment when entered at a

20.4 Additional Standards

20.4.1 Special Support for Continuous Mailers

    Mailers who cannot generate a finalized postage statement two hours 
before container entry may request approval for an eInduction 
Continuous Mailer ID, (MID). Once approved, mailers using an authorized 
MID in the IMcb may enter any container with the approved MID in the 
IMcb prior to the receipt of electronic documentation. Mailers are 
required to submit an eDoc and generate a finalized postage statement 
for all eInduction MID containers within one calendar day of the unload 
scan. Mailers may request authorization for an MID through the Business 
Customer Gateway. The USPS must approve the mailer request before the 
mailer may participate in the MID process.
