We have attempted to make your access to the public documents of the Postal Regulatory Commission convenient and efficient through the use of our electronic Library. The Library contains summaries of docketed cases before the Commission, past and present, as well as summaries and details of documents filed with PRC for these cases.

You can find reports and studies prepared by PRC and periodic reports filed by the US Postal Service, as well as public notices published in the Federal Register pertaining to PRC and postal issues. The Library Reference Desk provides access to speeches, Congressional testimony, and papers presented by the Commissioners, PRC staff and others. The Mail Classification Schedule is available for viewing in the Library. Older documents that are not associated with docketed cases can be accessed in the Archived Documents section.


Dockets is an electronic library of legal records filed for cases before the Commission. Since 1996, when the website was created, attorneys, analysts, and other interested parties have accessed the case records via the PRC Website. Dockets is organized by Active Cases, All Cases, Opinions and Decisions, Orders, and Rate Commission Archives (1971-2004).
