USPS Form 3553 is required to include the specific configuration of the address-matching software that was used in the mailing. This specific configuration must have been CASS-certified. CODE-1 Plus automatically produces USPS Form 3553 when the parameters are set to a certified configuration.

Note: i WARNING: If you use CODE-1 Plus with an uncertified configuration, CODE-1 Plus does not produce a USPS Form 3553. It is against USPS regulations for address-matching software to produce a USPS Form 3553 when uncertified configurations are used. If you use uncertified configurations, CODE-1 Plus generates a message telling you that the configuration is not certified, and that no form was printed.

Precisely has CASS-certified the following configurations.

Parameter

8-10   blank

USPS record type.

CONFIG

DPVIN

 

DPV must be invoked to produce USPS Form 3553.

STELNK

 

You must invoke SuiteLink processing to produce USPS Form 3553.

You must specify "S" (default) in STELNK position 8. If you specify "I" or "W" in position 8, CODE-1 Plus does not generate a USPS Form 3553. The value in position 8 determines whether to shut down when SuiteLink reports an error.

  • I — Ignore error and continue to attempt SuiteLink processing. CODE-1 Plus does not generate a USPS Form 3553 (USPS CASS Summary Report) if you specify the value "I".

  • S — Shutdown when SuiteLink reports an error (default). Specify the value "S" if you want to generate a USPS Form 3553 (USPS CASS Summary Report).

  • W — Issue warning message and turn off SuiteLink processing. CODE-1 Plus does not generate a USPS Form 3553 (USPS CASS Summary Report) if you specify the value "W".

Note: NOTE: The FIRMNM parameter is required when you use the STELNK parameter.

 

A non-CASS configuration is determined if the maximum probability of correctness indicators are not the same for all the parameters. The following table provides descriptions of all non-Cass configurations.
