Intelligent Mail® Tray Label Certification
To ensure accuracy, optimal bar code quality and readability of the Intelligent Mail® Tray Label, the USPS® offers a voluntary label certification process of the Intelligent Mail Tray Label for software vendors that generate tray label software. This certification process will validate the Intelligent Mail Tray Label design specifications, technical barcode requirements for the tray barcodes, placement of the barcode and human-readable data elements on the label, as well as the ability to generate accurate label content.
Who is Intelligent Mail Tray Label Certification for?
Software vendors. Mailers who are not software vendors may request to have their Intelligent Mail barcodes and tray labels validated by their local Mailpiece Design Analyst.
This certification process will validate the Intelligent Mail Tray Label design specifications, technical barcode requirements for the tray barcodes, placement of the barcode and human-readable data elements on the label, as well as the ability to generate accurate label content. Vendors who pass certification receive PS Form 3114 as documentation for successfully completing the IMTL Certification.
The certification process shall be structured around the following framework:
- Vendors will be certified as either Basic Service or Full-Service (Full-Service Certification meets the need of both Basic and Full-Service).
- A vendor who does not typically submit mailings will not be assigned a Mailer ID. A generic MID for certification purposes only will be assigned to software vendors.
- The vendors will submit physical label samples for each format, for which they are requesting certification, to the NCSC Barcode Certification Department (IMTL Certification). These labels are to be representative samples of the labels that will be applied to mail trays, sacks or tubs for submission to the USPS.
- Basic Service Certification will require labels presented with unique destination ZIP Codes, for each format for which certification is being requested. The same destination ZIP Codes can be used for each format. The NCSC will review the ZIP Code on each label to ensure that 100 unique destination ZIP Codes have been submitted.
- Full-Service Certification will require labels presented with unique serial numbers in addition to the unique destination ZIP Codes, for each format for which certification is being requested. The same destination ZIP Codes can be used for each format.
