USPS Temporarily Suspends Deliv Confirm Int'l Service to Some Countries

IMM Revision: Temporary Suspension of Electronic USPS Delivery Confirmation International Service to Various Countries

Effective June 12, 2014, the Postal Service™ is temporarily suspending Electronic USPS Delivery Confirmation International™ service to Brazil, Denmark, France, Gibraltar, Italy, Luxembourg, and Portugal because recent performance evaluations conducted by the Postal Service for these destinations are not satisfactory.

Consequently, we are revising Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, International Mail Manual (IMM®) Exhibit 232.122 and Exhibit 252.22 to indicate that we have temporarily suspended this service to these destinations.

Nonetheless, copies of the customer-generated electronic combined shipping and customs label (PS Form 2976, Customs Declaration CN 22 — Sender’s Declaration) will continue to include the Post Exprès logo and the markings “E-DELCON SERVICE.” The continued use of these labels will make it possible for the Postal Service to evaluate scanning performance at these destinations. When scanning performances at these destinations reach a satisfactory level, we will make subsequent announcements and IMM revisions regarding this service to these destinations.

Until that time, customers should have no expectation of tracking information (such as the date and time an article was delivered, or that a delivery was attempted but not completed). Customers who need tracking information to Brazil, Denmark, France, Gibraltar, Italy, Luxembourg, and Portugal should purchase Global Express Guaranteed® service, Priority Mail Express International® service, or Priority Mail International® service (but not Priority Mail International Flat Rate Envelopes and Small Flat Rate Priced Boxes).
