Modification of CASS Requirement to Show Suite Number

Posted on

The SuiteLink® product enables customers to provide improved business addressing information by adding known secondary (suite) information to business addresses, which allows USPS®automated delivery sequencing where it would not otherwise be possible.

Beginning August 1, 2011, the Postal Service™ is modifying a previously-announced CASS™ Cycle N requirement. Mailers will not be required to show the suite number returned by SuiteLink on the mailpiece to qualify for an automation price, but instead, mailers may generate a delivery point barcode derived by incorporating the suite number indicated by SuiteLink.

This modification also applies to MASS™-certified equipment and removes the requirement for the suite number to be sprayed above the barcode.
