Authorization to Manufacturer and Distribute Postage Meters
This rule clarifies and enhances cautionary label markings required by Postal Service regulation to be placed on all postage meters to provide meter users with basic reminders on leasing, meter movement, and misuse. It also removes the obsolete requirement for the placement of a barcode label containing representation of meter serial numbers. The meter manufacturer must promptly develop and implement a plan to change out the labels on existing meters leased or rented, including rebuilding, manufacturing, servicing, and inspection programs to expedite application of the new label. These plans must be approved by the Postage Technology Management office.
