USPS Plan for Secure Postage Meter Technology

Over a decade ago the US Postal Service initiated a mandated meter migration plan that transitioned the installed base of meters from certain technology demonstrated to be susceptible to tampering, counterfeit or misuse to available technology offering enhanced security. This process was completed in four phases with the last one, Phase IV, being completed as of December 31st, 2008. All of our meters that are currently available meet USPS requirements.
