New Intelligent Mail barcode Readability Standards

without comments

WHEN:  Effective November 30, 2009

WHAT:  80% threshold for barcode readability verifications for IMb Flats and Letters

HOW:  Verifications will be performed on MERLIN equipment.

THE RUB:  Based on verification results, you will either
a. pass
b. fail – your mail is then held up at the verification point until you pay additional postage.  If you disagree with this ruling, your mail sits – or you pay and dispute at your own cost at a later date.
