USPS TEM Testing for Full-Service Approval

with one comment

Several companies that I know of have completed USPS TEM (Test Environment for Mailers) electronic documentation testing for Full-Service, however, none of them have been approved.  After completing the scenarios laid out in the Full Service Checklist up on http://ribbs.usps.gov/ (you’ll never find it there without knowing in advance that it is cryptically filed under Intelligent Mail>>Business Customer Gateway), applicants are then sent to USPS HQ “for final approval”.  So far this has amounted to a sort of limbo status – nobody can advise how long this second level of approval will take, or where an individual applicant currently stands.  After putting in a lot of work to do the testing in a timely manner, it is frustrating to now have to wait for an undetermined amount of time for final approval.

Please feel free to comment and tell us your TEM testing story.  Anybody out there approved for Full Service??
