The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 39 CFR Part 3001 after this date.
The Commission is proposing to amend its existing rules relating to non-public materials. The proposed rules ensure appropriate transmission and protection of non-public materials, maintain appropriate transparency, and modernize practice before the Commission.

The rules address the contents of market test filings, review of filings, and related matters.

The Commission is issuing a set of final rules concerning the procedures related to Postal Service requests for an advisory opinion from the Commission on a change in the nature of service. Adoption of the rules follows a review of comments on proposed rules. After consideration of comments received, some proposed rules were modified, clarified, or corrected. Adoption of these rules will expedite the issuance of advisory opinions.
The Postal Regulatory Commission published a document in the Federal Register on June 18, 2013 (78 FR 36434) revising certain Commission rules of practice. That document inadvertently omits the word “except” in the introductory text of 39 CFR 3001.7(b). In addition, an amendatory instruction led to the unintended omission of § 3001.7(b)(1) through (b)(5) in the Code of Federal Regulations. This document corrects the final regulations by restoring the omitted elements, consistent with the scope and intent of Order No. 1742.
The Commission is proposing a set of rules to address Postal Service filings concerning market tests of experimental products. The proposed rules address the contents of market test filings, describe how the filings will be reviewed, and discuss related matters. The Commission invites public comments on the proposed rule.
The Commission recently proposed minor changes to its rules of general applicability. The proposed changes involved minor clarifications and corrections. Having reviewed comments on the proposed changes, the Commission is adopting a final set of rules. The final rules reflect statutory and regulatory changes; minor editorial changes; and changes designed to foster clarity and simplicity. They also reflect, in some instances, the suggestions of a commenter. Adoption of the revisions will promote effective and efficient administration of agency business.
The Commission is proposing revisions to its rules of practice related to Postal Service requests for an advisory opinion from the Commission on a nationwide (or substantially nationwide) change in the nature of service. The proposed revisions are intended to expedite issuance of advisory opinions while preserving due process. The Commission invites public comment on the proposed revisions to assist with development of a final set of revised rules.
This notice addresses proposed revisions to the Commission's rules of practice. The revisions (as clarified by an errata issued March 19, 2013) are intended to update existing rules due to recent statutory and regulatory changes; make technical editorial changes; and foster clarity and simplicity to reduce the potential for confusion. The notice also takes related administrative steps, including an invitation for comments on the proposed revisions. Comments will assist the Commission in developing a final rule.

The Commission is establishing a docket to consider proposed changes in procedures for handling cases under 39 U.S.C. 3661.

Following review of the comments, the Commission may institute a rulemaking proceeding to consider adoption of updated procedures.
