Start Preamble


Postal Regulatory Commission.


Correcting amendments.


The Postal Regulatory Commission published a document in the Federal Register on November 9, 2007 (72 FR 63662), adopting new rules. That document inadvertently misidentified, in section 3020.91, the length of time for the Postal Service to file a notice of certain types of corrections to product descriptions in the Mail Classification Schedule and mischaracterized, in section 3020.93, the scope of a product list. This document corrects the final regulations by revising these sections.


Effective on December 10, 2007.

This document summarizes the Commission's Notice of Errata issued on January 24, 2008, addressing two errors in final regulations. Review of regulations regarding Docket No. RM2007-1 (Order No. 43) indicates a Start Printed Page 6427need for revision of two sections to conform to the Commission's Order No. 43, October 29, 2007, which adopted those regulations.

The first affects 39 CFR 3020.91. As published, this section states that the Postal Service is to file a notice of a correction in product lists no later than 30 days prior to the effective date of the proposed change. The correct timeframe for filing such notices is no later than 15 days.

The second revision affects 39 CFR 3020.93. As published, this section includes the phrase “market dominant” before “product description”. The phrase “market dominant” should not have been used as a qualifier.

As published, the final regulations contain errors which may prove to be misleading and need to be clarified.
