PS Form 2018 Replaced by Revised PS Form 3977 and New PS Form 3902

Effective August 16, 2007, PS Form 2018, Duplicate Key, PIN, and Combination Inventory, is obsolete. All PS Forms 2018 must be discarded/recycled. Post Offices™ and postal retail units must use the May 2007 edition of PS Form 3977, Duplicate Key, Combination, and Password Envelope, instead. The form was revised to accommodate the storing of safe or vault combinations, an integrated retail terminal logon ID, a POS system password, a Small Post Office Reporting Tool (SPORT) password, an Automated Postal Center® (APC®) password, and APC keys, as well as the storing of dupli­cate keys for each stamp cabinet, cash drawer, safe com­partment, envelope drawer, and stamp vending machine.

In addition, the new PS Form 3902, Form 3977 Log and Lock Examination, is available for postmasters, managers, and supervisors to maintain a log of PS Forms 3977 assigned at the unit and to keep a record of the semiannual examination of PS Forms 3977 and the annual examination of locks and keys.
