  7. Introduction

    This rulemaking is initiated by the Postal Regulatory Commission (Commission) to fulfill its responsibilities under the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act (PAEA), Public Law 109-435, 120 Stat. 3198 (2006). The proposed rules amend existing rules concerning the Mail Classification Schedule (MCS) and the associated market dominant and competitive product lists. The proposals amend existing rules to conform to the current practice of publishing the MCS on the Commission's Web site at www.prc.gov, noticing changes to the market dominant and competitive product lists in the Federal Register, and publishing the market dominant and competitive product lists in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).

    The proposed rules replace existing 39 CFR part 3020, subpart A in its entirety. Conforming changes also are proposed for 39 CFR part 3020, subparts B, C, and D. The proposed text for these rules appears after the signature of this Order.

  8. History

    On October 29, 2007, the Commission issued Order No. 43, which in part established rules concerning the MCS, and the market dominant and competitive product lists.\1\ It also directed publication of an MCS outline in the CFR that was limited to a table of contents and the market dominant and competitive product lists. Order No. 43, Appendix A. These rules, including the appendix, were codified at 39 CFR part 3020.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Docket No. RM2007-1, Order Establishing Ratemaking Regulations for Market Dominant and Competitive Products, October 29, 2007, at 99-108, 138-154 (Order No. 43); 72 FR 64155, November 15, 2007.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Commission, in Docket No. RM2007-1, also began the process of developing a comprehensive MCS.\2\ This task was not complete at the time the Commission issued Order No. 43.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Docket No. RM2007-1, Order No. 26, Order Proposing Regulations to Establish a System of Ratemaking, August 15, 2007, at 2, 82-83; 72 FR 50744, September 4, 2007. See also Order No. 43 at 99.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    When an initial proposed MCS was complete, the Commission initiated Docket No. RM2011-8 to incorporate it into the CFR.\3\ The proposed MCS was to replace the existing outline of the MCS. The Commission solicited and received comments on both the proposed MCS and the corresponding rules. The suggestions provided in the comments were extremely helpful in further developing the MCS and have been incorporated into the rule proposals appearing in the instant rulemaking.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Docket No. RM2011-8, Order No. 666, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Concerning Mail Classification Schedule, February 7, 2011; Docket No. RM2011-8, Order No. 758, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Concerning Mail Classification Schedule (Revising Order No. 666), July 12, 2011; 76 FR 51311 (Aug. 18, 2011) (to be codified at 39 CFR part 3020, subpart A).

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    From an administrative perspective, the rulemaking also required the Commission to develop internal procedures for implementing the proposed rules. This included procedures for publishing timely updates to the MCS and the associated product lists appearing in the CFR. Because of the continuous flow of Postal Service proposals to add or modify products, the Commission recognized that keeping the CFR-

    published MCS and the associated product lists current would require updates on a weekly, if not daily, basis. With the procedures envisioned and the anticipated frequency of updates, the Commission concluded that it would incur prohibitive publication costs and challenging resource burdens.\4\

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ The Commission also explored a ``publication by reference'' approach with the Federal Register. This approach presented an equal number of challenges to the Commission and was dropped from consideration.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the interim, the Postal Service and the Commission each maintained versions of the MCS. The Postal Service used its version when presenting price and classification proposals to the Commission for evaluation. This required the Commission to first resolve any differences between the Commission's version of the MCS and the Postal Service's version of the MCS before considering the Postal Service's proposals.

    On April 1, 2013, the Commission published its version of the MCS to the Commission's Web site.\5\ This provided visibility to all interested persons participating in Commission proceedings as to current prices and classifications. From this point forward, the Postal Service submitted its proposed price and classification changes based on this version of the MCS.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ Notice of Posting Draft Mail Classification Schedule to the Commission's Web site, April 1, 2013. At this stage in the development of the MCS, the Commission's version and the Postal Service's version were nearly identical.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Commission developed internal procedures for updating the draft MCS appearing on its Web site on approximately a monthly basis. The Commission displays all changes in redline, as had been requested by the Postal Service. The redline changes are incorporated, and a new baseline MCS created, at the conclusion of major price or classification proceedings. All prior versions of the MCS are archived and available on the Web site for reference.

    Page 21507

    The Commission also developed internal procedures for publishing product list changes in the Federal Register and for updating the outline MCS appearing in the CFR. The Commission, at that time, removed the table of contents from the outline MCS and simply provided current market dominant and competitive product lists.\6\ The Commission also elected to notice product list changes in the Federal Register and update the product lists in the CFR on approximately a quarterly basis. Internal Commission procedures were implemented to compile product list changes directed by Commission orders by calendar quarter. The compiled list of changes are noticed in the Federal Register and are used to update the outline MCS appearing in the CFR shortly after the close of each calendar quarter.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ The table of contents was hopelessly outdated and contradicted the table of contents appearing in the MCS appearing on the Commission's Web site.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The instant rulemaking proposes to codify the current practice, as described in the above procedures. The MCS appearing on the Web site has proven effective in documenting current prices and classifications and in facilitating communications of the Postal Service's proposed price and classification changes to the Commission. The procedures for noticing product list changes in the Federal Register and updating product lists in the CFR fulfill the statutory requirements for publishing revised product lists.

    The effect of the rulemaking is to make the version of the MCS appearing on the Commission's Web site the authoritative and most up to date comprehensive source for price and classification information for Postal Service products.\7\ In keeping with current practice, the proposed rules codify that product lists will continue to be published in the CFR, with notice of changes published in the Federal Register. The proposed rules no longer indicate that the MCS will be published in the CFR.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ The proposed rules recognize the immediate binding effect of the Commission's final orders on the Postal Service, subject to statutory challenge, and the inherent time lag in updating product lists and the MCS.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

  9. Rule Modifications

    The Commission's existing rules concerning the MCS, which include the associated market dominant and the competitive product lists, are codified at 39 CFR part 3020, subpart A--Mail Classification Schedule. An abridged version of the MCS (which only includes the market dominant and competitive product lists) is codified at 39 CFR part 3020, Appendix A to subpart A--Mail Classification Schedule.

    This rulemaking codifies current practice. The product lists and the MCS will be treated as separate items. Only the product lists are noticed in the Federal Register and published in the CFR. The MCS will be available on the Commission's Web site.\8\ Conforming changes are also required in 39 CFR part 3020, subparts B, C, and D.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ For the convenience of the reader, the MCS will include copies of the market dominant and competitive product lists.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The title of subpart A is changed from ``Mail Classification Schedule'' to ``Product Lists and Mail Classification Schedule.'' The addition of ``Product Lists'' to the title more accurately describes the content of subpart A.

    The existing Sec. 3020.1, ``Applicability,'' specifies that the market dominant and competitive product lists are to be included as part of the MCS. The proposed Sec. 3020.1 describes the product lists and the MCS as separate items.

    Proposed Sec. 3020.1(a) clarifies that it is the Commission's responsibility to establish and maintain lists of Postal Service products and a MCS.

    Proposed Sec. 3020.1(b) replaces existing Sec. 3020.1(a). Both specify that the starting point for the product lists are the market dominant products identified in 39 U.S.C. 3621(a) and the competitive products identified in 39 U.S.C. 3631(a). Proposed Sec. 3020.1(b) expands upon this requirement by including products within the product lists identified as market tests pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 3641 and nonpostal pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 404(e). This flows from the requirement for the Postal Service to properly categorize market tests as either market dominant or competitive (39 U.S.C. 3641(b)(2)) and the Commission to properly categorize nonpostal services as either market dominant or competitive (39 U.S.C. 404(e)(5)).\9\

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ This change was adopted at the suggestion of the Docket No. RM2011-8 Public Representative. Docket No. RM2011-8, Public Representative Comments on Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Concerning Mail Classification Schedule, March 24, 2011, at 5.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Proposed Sec. 3020.1(c) states the purpose of the MCS as providing current price and classification information applicable to the products appearing on the market dominant and competitive product lists.

    Proposed Sec. 3020.1(d) modifies the material previously included in existing Sec. 3020.1(b) by addressing the product lists and the MCS as two separate items. The proposed section provides that either item may be modified subject to the procedures in 39 CFR part 3020.

    Proposed Sec. 3020.2 directs that the market dominant and competitive product lists shall be published in the Federal Register as appendix A to subpart A of part 3020 and appendix B to subpart A of part 3020, respectively. Currently, an abridged version of the MCS, which includes only the market dominant and competitive product lists, is published in the Federal Register as appendix A to subpart A of part 3020. The intent of the existing rule was to eventually publish the entire MCS in the Federal Register. The intent of the proposed rule is to implement current practice and only publish the market dominant and competitive product lists in the Federal Register. Providing a separate appendix for each product list is intended to potentially reduce Federal Register publication costs when modifications are required of one product list but not the other.

    Proposed Sec. 3020.3 explains how product lists are modified and how the public is notified of such changes. This section replaces and expands upon the material previously appearing in existing Sec. 3020.14. Generally, Sec. 3020.3 implements the publication requirement appearing in 39 U.S.C. 3642(d)(2), which requires Federal Register notice of product list changes.

    Proposed Sec. 3020.3(a) explains that the requirement to publish notice of a product list change is triggered by a Commission final order that directs such changes.

    The current practice of the Commission is to accumulate all final orders involving changes to product lists and to file a product list update with the Federal Register on a quarterly basis. Proposed Sec. 3020.3(b) sets a maximum 6-month deadline for filing the quarterly update. This essentially provides a maximum of 3 months from the quarterly accumulation cutoff date to process and submit the changes to the Federal Register.

    The Commission's position is that Commission orders issued within its jurisdiction are binding upon the Postal Service when issued, unless challenged pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 3663. Accordingly, Sec. 3020.3(c) specifies that changes to product lists are effective upon issuance of the final order, and not upon publication in the Federal Register, which generally occurs at a later date.

    Proposed Sec. 3020.3(d) specifies the content of the Federal Register notice consistent with the requirements of 39 U.S.C. 3642(d)(2). This material previously appeared in existing Sec. 3020.14.

    Page 21508

    Since April 1, 2013, the MCS has been available on the Commission's Web site at www.prc.gov. Proposed Sec. 3020.4(a) directs the Commission to publish the authoritative version of the MCS on its Web site. Proposed Sec. 3020.4(b) describes the minimum required content of the MCS. This material previously appeared in existing Sec. 3020.13.

    Proposed Sec. 3020.5 explains that modifications to the MCS are triggered by Commission final orders directing such changes.

    The current practice of the Commission is to accumulate all final orders involving changes to the MCS and to update it on a monthly basis. Proposed Sec. 3020.5(b) sets a maximum 3-month deadline for filing the quarterly update. This essentially provides a maximum of 2 months from the quarterly accumulation cutoff date to process and post a revised MCS to the Web site.

    The Commission's position is that its orders are binding upon the Postal Service when issued, unless challenged pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 3663. Accordingly, Sec. 3020.3(c) specifies that changes to the MCS are effective upon issuance of the final order, and not once the MCS is actually modified, which generally occurs at a later date.

    The titles to 39 CFR part 3020, subparts B, C, and D and Sec. Sec. 3020.30, 3020.50, and 3020.70 refer to the product lists as being within the MCS. Conforming changes are proposed to remove this reference.
