Mail Classification Schedule (MCS)

Current MCS (redline version)

The Mail Classification Schedule describes every product offered to the public by the US Postal Service and serves as a standard reference work when reviewing ongoing postal products. A draft working copy of the Mail Classification Schedule is available here. It is typically updated on a weekly basis in redline legislative format to represent the most current US Postal Service product offerings.
