The document is amended and republished about once a year, with each issue sequentially numbered. Interim updates of the DMM are posted monthly on the USPS Postal Explorer Web site (http://pe.usps.gov). DMM Issue 56, the next printed edition, is scheduled for release on January 7, 2001.

The following excerpt from section I010, Summary of Changes, of the transmittal letter for DMM Issue 56 covers the minor changes not previously described in interim or final rules published in the Federal Register.
