I. Introduction

On June 25, 2010, the Postal Service filed a request for semi-permanent exceptions from periodic reporting of service performance measurement for various market dominant postal services, or components of postal services, pursuant to Commission Order No. 465 and 39 CFR 3055.3.1

Rule 3055.3 provides the Postal Service an opportunity to request that a product, or component of a product, be excluded from service performance measurement reporting upon demonstration that:(1) The cost of implementing a measurement system would be prohibitive in relation to the revenue generated by the product, or component of a product;(2) the product, or component of a product, defies meaningful measurement; or(3) the product, or component of a product, is in the form of a negotiated service agreement with substantially all components of the agreement included in the measurement of other products.

The Postal Service seeks semi-permanent exceptions for Standard Mail High Density, Saturation, and Carrier Route Parcels, Inbound International Surface Parcel Post (at UPU Rates), hard-copy Address Correction Service, various Special Services, Within County Periodicals, and various negotiated service agreements. Request at 1.

The Commission establishes Docket No. RM2010-11 for consideration of matters related to the proposed semi-permanent exceptions from periodic reporting of service performance measurement identified in the Postal Service's Request.

Interested persons may submit comments on whether the Postal Service's Request is consistent with the policies of 39 U.S.C. 3652(a)(2) and 39 CFR 3055.3. Comments are due no later than July 16, 2010. The Postal Service's Request can be accessed via the Commission's Web site (http://www.prc.gov).

The Commission appoints Emmett Rand Costich to serve as Public Representative in the captioned proceedings.
