2-5 Postal Service Verification Responsibilities

A Postal Service employee trained in business mail acceptance verifies the mailer’s product as follows:

  1. Verify classification, price eligibility, preparation, and presort for compliance with requirements.
  2. Verify postage, collect fees, and debit mailer’s permit account.
  3. When a mailer presents PS Form 8125, verify that the form section titled “Mailer Information” accurately represents the mailer’s product, and that the mailer has entered the correct destination entry office where the product is to be drop shipped.
  4. When a mailer presents PS Form 8125, complete the form section titled “Origin Post Office.” Unless the mailer has authorization to submit unsigned consolidated forms, the Postal Service employee must sign and round-date each PS Form 8125.
