Question: When is this available?

Answer: Now. Self enrollment through BCG: https://gateway.usps.com/eAdmin/view/signin

 

Question: Is BRM (Business Reply Mail) still not a part of this because of accountability?

Answer: If processors/mailers are using QBRM (accounting for BRM via IMBa) and other criteria is met, it could qualify. Non QBRM BRM is not eligible.
