IMAG Comments on OCPI Proposal
The International Mailers Advisory Group urged the Postal Service to provide 90 days lead time between a final rule and implementation of its proposed new service, Outbound Commercial Provider Initiative (OCPI). Mailers and shippers need enough time to make software and system changes, among other adjustments. In addition, IMAG suggested the Postal Service launch a market test of OCPI to one or two countries rather than a full rollout of the new service given how many elements are still unknown.
