SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

On March 8, 2001, the Postal Service published in the Federal Register (66 FR 13868) a notice of proposed changes to International Customized Mail Service. These proposed changes would reduce the required volume or revenue that a mailer of non-letter-post items (including Global Priority Mail) must meet to qualify for International Customized Mail service. The volume requirement would be reduced from 1 million pounds of international mail to 600 pieces, on an annualized basis. The revenue requirement would be reduced from $2 million in international postage to $12,000, on an annualized basis.

The Postal Service invited public comment by April 9, 2001. The Postal Service did not receive any comments by that date. Accordingly, the Postal Service is adopting the proposed rule.

The Postal Service adopts the following amendments to the International Mail Manual (IMM), which is incorporated by reference in the Code of Federal Regulations. See 39 CFR 20.1.
