Postal ServiceTM.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Postal Service will adopt new mailing standards and prices for First-Class Mail International service on May 12, 2008, which reflects current First-Class Mail domestic shape-based standards. Our revisions recognize that each mailpiece shape—letter, flat, and parcel—has substantially different processing costs that needs to be covered. Currently, the First-Class Mail International pricing structure does not have a distinction between letter-size, flat-size, and package (small packet) pricing.

DATES:

Effective Date: 12:01 a.m. on May 12, 2008.

241 Description

241.1 General

The First-Class Mail International classification encompasses all categories of international mail that prior to May 14, 2007, were categorized as airmail letter-post and economy letter-post, postcards and postal cards, printed matter, and small packets that were formerly categorized as LC (letters and cards) and AO (other articles).

241.2 Mailable Matter

Any article that is otherwise acceptable and not prohibited by the Postal Service or country of destination, subject to applicable weight and size limits, may be mailed at the First-Class Mail International price.

241.3 Color

Light-colored envelopes and cards that do not interfere with the reading of the address and postmark must be used. Do not use brilliant colors.

241.4 Quality

Envelopes, cards, and packaging materials must be constructed strong enough to withstand normal handling. Highly glazed paper or paper with a design that affects readability or processing is not acceptable.

241.5 Window Envelopes

Window envelopes must be used under the following conditions:

a. The address window must be parallel with the length of the envelope.

b. The address window must be in the lower portion of the address side.

c. Nothing but the name, address, and any key number used by the mailer may appear through the address window.

d. The return address should appear in the upper-left corner. If there is no return address and the delivery address does not show through the window, the piece will be handled as undeliverable mail.

e. The address disclosed through the window must be on white paper or paper of a very light color.

f. When used for registered mail, window envelopes must conform to the conditions in DMM 503.

g. Open panel envelopes, i.e., those in which the panel is not covered with a transparent material, are not acceptable in international mail.

243.3 Large Envelopes (Flats)

b. Not more than 15 inches long, or more than 12 inches high, or more than 3/4-inch thick.

c. Flexible (see 243.33).

d. Rectangular.

e. Uniformly thick as stated in 243.34.

Note:

A First-Class Mail International large envelope (flat) that does not meet the standards in 243.3 is not eligible for large envelope (flat) size price and are charged the applicable package (small packet) price.

243.33 Minimum Flexibility

Large envelopes (flats) must be flexible. Boxes, with or without hinges, gaps, or breaks that allow the piece to bend, are not considered large envelopes (flats). Tight envelopes or wrappers that are filled with one or more boxes are not considered large envelopes (flats). At the customer's option, a customer may perform the following test on their own mailpieces. When a postal employee observes a customer demonstrating that a flat-size piece is flexible according to these standards, the employee does not need to perform the test. Test flats as follows:

a. All large envelopes (flats) (see Exhibit 243.33a):

1. Place the piece with the length parallel to the edge of a flat surface and extend the piece halfway off the surface.

2. Press down on the piece at a point 1 inch from the outer edge, in the center of the piece's length, exerting steady pressure.

3. The piece is not flexible if it cannot bend at least 1 inch vertically without being damaged.

4. The piece is flexible if it can bend at least 1 inch vertically without being damaged and it does not contain a rigid insert. No further testing is necessary.

5. Test the piece according to 243.33b or 243.33c below if it can bend at least 1 inch vertically without being damaged and it contains a rigid insert.

Exhibit 243.33a Flexibility Test—All Large Envelopes (Flats)

(See examples on Postal Explorer at pe.usps.com—click on Federal Register Notices in the left frame.)

b. Large envelopes 10 inches or longer that pass the test in 243.33a and contain a rigid insert (see Exhibit 243.33b): Start Printed Page 9194

1. Place the piece with the length perpendicular to the edge of a flat surface and extend the piece 5 inches off the surface.

2. Press down on the piece at a point 1 inch from the outer edge, in the center of the piece's width, exerting steady pressure.

3. Turn the piece around and repeat steps 1 and 2. The piece is flexible if both ends can bend at least 2 inches vertically without being damaged.

Exhibit 243.33b Flexibility Test—Large Envelopes (Flats) 10 Inches or Longer

(See examples on Postal Explorer at pe.usps.com—click on Federal Register Notices in the left frame.)

c. Large envelopes less than 10 inches long that pass the test in 243.33a and contain a rigid insert (see Exhibit 243.33c):

1. Place the piece with the length perpendicular to the edge of a flat surface and extend the piece one-half of its length off the surface.

2. Press down on the piece at a point 1 inch from the outer edge, in the center of the piece's width, exerting steady pressure.

3. Turn the piece around and repeat steps 1 and 2. The piece is flexible if both ends can bend at least 1 inch vertically without being damaged.

Exhibit 243.33c Flexibility Test—Large Envelopes (Flats) Less Than 10 Inches Long

(See examples on Postal Explorer at pe.usps.com—click on Federal Register Notices in the left frame.)

243.34 Uniform Thickness

Large envelopes (Flats) must be uniformly thick so that any bumps, protrusions, or other irregularities do not cause more than 1/4-inch variance in thickness. When determining variance in thickness, exclude the outside edges of a mailpiece (1 inch from each edge) when the contents do not extend into those edges. Also, exclude the selvage of any polywrap covering from this determination. Mailers must secure nonpaper contents to prevent shifting of more than 2 inches within the mailpiece if shifting would cause the piece to be nonuniform in thickness or would result in the contents bursting out of the mailpiece.

243.4 Packages (Small Packets)

243.41 Weight Limit

The weight limit is 4 pounds.

243.42 Dimensions

Packages (small packets) must be within the following dimensions:

a. Maximum length: 24 inches. Length is the longest dimension.

b. Maximum length, height, and depth (thickness) combined: 36 inches.

c. Minimum size: Large enough to accommodate the postage, address, customs form, and other required elements on the address side.

243.43 Rolls

243.431 Weight Limit

The weight limit is 4 pounds.

243.432 Dimensions

Rolls must be within the following dimensions:

a. Minimum length: 4 inches.

b. Minimum length plus twice the diameter combined: 63/4 inches.

c. Maximum length: 36 inches.

d. Maximum length plus twice the diameter combined: 42 inches.

244.2 Marking

[Revise item “a” as follows:]

a. Mailers must package mailpieces to withstand normal transit and handling without content or package breakage, injury to USPS employees, or damage to other mail or USPS equipment.

b. Mailers must package their contents to prevent their deterioration.

* * * * *

[Revise renumbered 244.4f as follows:]

f. First-Class Mail International items, in card form, are permitted, so long as their overall dimensions do not exceed 43/4 inches or 91/4 inches. See 243.144.
