USPS asks PRC to extend RPN test

Share this article:

The U.S. Postal Service filed a request with the Postal Regulatory Commission on April 2 to postpone the April 3 termination date for the repositionable notes (RPN) test and extend the termination date for one additional year.

The postponement allows the USPS and the PRC to focus on the implementation of the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act.

RPNs are sticky notes that can be placed on envelopes, catalogs, magazines or newspapers to highlight information or an offer. Because the notes can be removed easily, the recipient can place them somewhere handy as a reminder of the offer. The service was implemented on April 3, 2005.

The filing acts to postpone the current termination date. The USPS was granted a one-year extension of the repositionable note program in 2006 to take it through April 3, 2007.
