Dear valued customers,
Full Implementation of Standard Mail come January 2006
On December 31, 2005, the extension granted by Pos Malaysia Berhad (PMB) on
selected Standard Mail criteria came to an end. Effective from January 1, 2006,
customers who wish to post their mail under Standard Mail category are required
to abide by all Standard Mail criteria.
PMB announced the reclassification of its mail products in February this
year, introducing five Standard Mail criteria to facilitate its automation
process. In April 2005, PMB granted a waiver till year-end on the requirement
for standard envelope colour and the required clearance zone. This was to allow
the customers to use their old stocks of pre-printed envelopes.
The five criteria for Standard Mail are as follows :
||Maximum weight : 50gm
||Minimum size : 90mm x 140mm
Maximum size : 165mm x 250mm
Width of envelope must be equal or greater than height of envelope
||Maximum thickness : 6mm
||White or light coloured, sealed envelope
||Bottom 15mm of the envelope must be left blank
The rates for Standard Mail are RMO.30 for items weighing up to 20gm and
RMO.40 for items weighing between 20gm and 50gm.
Pos Malaysia will continue to accept other types of envelopes under
Non-Standard Mail, Periodicals, and PosDokumen categories. Postcards, Aerogramme
and Parcel Service are not affected by the reclassification.
