Our USPS bulk mail department is requesting a Certification of Move Update Compliance for our membership mailings. Can Audubon provide that certification?
Unfortunately, it is not possible for Audubon to provide that certification. Once the roster or mailing labels are downloaded from the Chapter Reporting System website, Audubon no longer retains control of the membership list. PS Form 6014 must be certified by the owner of the mailing (i.e. the Chapter).
There are several different ways to comply with the USPS bulk mail Move Update requirements. You can learn more from Publication 363 at http://ribbs.usps.gov/move_update/documents/tech_guides/PUB_363_January_2009.doc.
A no-cost option is to bypass the Move Update standard by including “OR CURRENT RESIDENT” or “OR CURRENT OCCUPANT” on the address label (Audubon’s Web-generated labels now offer this option). However, if the resident or business has moved, that mail piece will not be forwarded or returned to the Post Office.
