Final Rule on USPS Price Changes
The Postal Service published a final rule in the Dec. 5 Federal Register on Mailing Services and Price Changes for International Mailing Services tied to the annual price adjustment that takes effect January 21, 2018. The PRC approved the price adjustments and product changes in a November ruling, and this final rule formally sets the effective date and provides the product changes to the International Mail Manual, conforming to the requirements of the Universal Postal Convention limiting the contents of First-Class Mail International postcard, letter, and large envelope (flat) mail to personal correspondence and non-dutiable documents. These also will accordingly be posted in the January 21, 2018, revision of the IMM on Postal Explorer at pe.usps.com
