As part of its Delivering for America plan, the United States Postal Service (Postal Service) strives to achieve service excellence through the provision of reliable and efficient service. As part of this effort, the Postal Service is planning to change the critical entry times (CETs) for certain categories of Periodicals Mail in order to increase operational effectiveness and improve service reliability. Towards that end, the Postal Service currently intends to file a request for a nationwide change in service under 39 U.S.C. § 3661 with the Postal Regulatory Commission (Commission). In advance of any filing of a request for an advisory opinion with the Commission, the Postal Service will host a Pre-filing Conference on August 25, 2022 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. EDT. The Postal Service will hold a virtual conference to facilitate participation. Representatives of the Postal Service capable of discussing the policy rationale behind the Postal Service proposal will be made available at this time.
