CASS Cycle N SuiteLink Requirement Amended

The USPS® has announced an amendment to the CASS™ Cycle N SuiteLink® requirement. Originally, the Postal Service stated that in order to qualify for an automation price, addresses printed on each mailpiece must include the suite information provided by SuiteLink. This requirement has been adjusted to make it easier for mailers to receive automation discounts. Under the new guidelines, as long as the mailer has attempted to encode the printed barcode to the Suite level using SuiteLink, it will be eligible for processing at automation rates, regardless of whether the actual suite information is printed on the addressed piece. This adjustment also applies to MASS™-certified equipment, no longer requiring the suite number to be sprayed above the barcode.
