SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 14, 2020, the Postal Service published a notice of proposed rulemaking (85 FR 28917–28918) to revise the time limit for extra service refunds on all classes of mail except Priority Mail Express®. The Postal Service has elected to issue a second revised proposed rule that also includes revising the timelines for Priority Mail Express® with an extra service. Currently, DMM Exhibit 604.9.2.1, Postage and Fees Refunds, provides that for Priority Mail Express with an extra service a customer must apply for an extra service refund no sooner than 10 days, or no later than 30 days, and for all other classes of mail with an extra service a customer must apply for an extra service refund no sooner than 10 days, or no later than 60 days, from the date the service was purchased. Certain extra services (e.g., Certified Mail®) have workflow timelines that extend beyond the current 10-day limit to initially file for a refund. As a result, PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 to meet the required workflow timelines for these extra services, and for consistency in application of the refund processes, the Postal Service is proposing to extend the current Priority Mail Express with an extra service timelines to no sooner than 30 days, or no later than 60 days. For all other classes of mail with an extra service, the 10-day time limit will be extended to a 30-day time limit before a customer can file for a refund. We believe this proposed revision will provide customers with a more efficient process and a more consistent customer experience. Although exempt from the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b), (c)) regarding proposed rulemaking by 39 U.S.C. 410(a), the Postal Service invites public comments on the following proposed revisions 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. We will publish an appropriate amendment to 39 CFR part 111 to reflect these changes.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 14, 2020, the Postal Service 
published a notice of proposed rulemaking (85 FR 28917-28918) to revise 
the time limit for extra service refunds on all classes of mail except 
Priority Mail Express[supreg]. The Postal Service has elected to issue 
a second revised proposed rule that also includes revising the 
timelines for Priority Mail Express[supreg] with an extra service.
    Currently, DMM Exhibit 604.9.2.1, Postage and Fees Refunds, 
provides that for Priority Mail Express with an extra service a 
customer must apply for an extra service refund no sooner than 10 days, 
or no later than 30 days, and for all other classes of mail with an 
extra service a customer must apply for an extra service refund no 
sooner than 10 days, or no later than 60 days, from the date the 
service was purchased.
    Certain extra services (e.g., Certified Mail[supreg]) have workflow 
timelines that extend beyond the current 10-day limit to initially file 
for a refund. As a result, to meet the required workflow timelines for 
these extra services, and for consistency in application of the refund 
processes, the Postal Service is proposing to extend the current 
Priority Mail Express with an extra service timelines to no sooner than 
30 days, or no later than 60 days. For all other classes of mail with 
an extra service, the 10-day time limit will be extended to a 30-day 
time limit before a customer can file for a refund.
    We believe this proposed revision will provide customers with a 
more efficient process and a more consistent customer experience.
    Although exempt from the notice and comment requirements of the 
Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b), (c)) regarding proposed 
rulemaking by 39 U.S.C. 410(a), the Postal Service invites public 
comments on the following proposed revisions 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.
    We will publish an appropriate amendment to 39 CFR part 111 to 
reflect these changes.
    Accordingly, 39 CFR part 111 is proposed to be amended as follows:
