ASM Revision: Passport Application Acceptance Service

Effective February 28, 2008, we are revising Administrative Support Manual 422.2 to remove current text and to designate the section as “Reserved.”

A rule that was published in the Federal Register on November 19, 2007 (Volume 72, pages 64930–64939), and that became effective February 1, 2008, reorganized, restructured, and updated passport regulations to better reflect current practice and changes in statutory authority and to remove outdated provisions. This rule requires that the Postal Service™ revise the current ASM 422.2. Until the revision is ready, the section will be designated “Reserved.”

Consequently, the article titled “ASM Revision: Passport Application Acceptance Service at Designated Post Offices” in Postal Bulletin 22215 (9-13-07, pages 14–23) is rescinded.
