On July 2, 2010, the Postal Service filed a notice pursuant to 39 CFR 3020.90 and 3020.91 concerning two classification changes to Address Management Services.1

The first change removes “Delivery Type” service from the list of services included within Address Management Services. The Postal Service states that this service is limited, outdated, not widely used, and the information obtained through this service may be obtained through other services. Id. at 1.

Rule 3020.91 requires that the Postal Service file a notice of proposed change no later than 15 days prior to the effective date of the change. The Postal Service intends to offer Delivery Type service subscriptions through September 30, 2010, and honor subscriptions until they expire. Id.

The second change removes the specifications as to how information is provided to customers for CRIS Route, City State, Delivery Statistics, eLOT, 5-Digit ZIP, Official National Zone Charge, Z4 Change, ZIP+4, ZIP Move, AMS API, and TIGER ZIP+4 services. Currently, CD-ROM, DVD, and disc are specified. Id. at 2. The Postal Service states that removing the specifications will allow it to provide information by any appropriate means. Id.
