PRC proposes to establish rules governing market tests of experimental products

without comments

Such tests are not subject to 39 U.S.C. 3622, 3633, or 3642, or regulations promulgated thereunder. Id. 3642a2. An experimental product may not be tested unless it satisfies each of the following conditions:

1 Significantly different product.— The product is, from the viewpoint of the mail users, significantly different from all products offered by the Postal Service within the 2-year period preceding the start of the test.

2 Market disruption.— The introduction or continued offering of the product will not create an unfair or otherwise inappropriate competitive advantage for the Postal Service or any mailer, particularly in regard to small business concerns as defined under subsection h.

3 Correct categorization.— The Postal Service identifies the product, for the purpose of a test under this section, as either market-dominant or competitive, consistent with the criteria under section 3642b1. 39 U.S.C. 3641b.
