USPS seeking comment on detached address labels

Share this content:

The US Postal Service is seeking public comment on a proposal that would require detached address labels (DALs) accompanying saturation mailings of periodicals or Standard Mail flats to be automation-compatible and barcoded.

The proposal was published in the Federal Register August 27.

The revised standards would require DALs accompanying these types of mailings to have a correct delivery point Postnet barcode or an Intelligent Mail barcode with an 11-digit routing code. The proposal would not apply to DALs with simplified addresses.

Existing mailing standards do not require DALs accompanying saturation mailings of periodicals and Standard Mail flats to be automation-compatible and barcoded unless advertising appears on the front.

Comments on the proposal are due to the USPS by September 26.
