Why the USPS 1583 Form is Needed

In United States, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) regulates how mail can be received and handled. USPS also dictates procedures for all commercial mail receiving agents (CMRAs) such as In Out Parcel to follow. USPS Form 1583 authorizes a CMRA to receive mail on the customer’s behalf.  For CMRA to be in compliance of the USPS regulations, the CMRA is required to collect this form on behalf of USPS.

If you never receive packages via USPS, then you do not need to fill out the form. This form is for customers who ship packages (and letter mail) to In Out Parcel via USPS.

I never needed to fill this form out at other mail receiving places before…

The USPS Form 1583 is not new, it was required even back in December 2004, when the form was last revised. It is technically illegal for CMRAs to receive your mail without your explicit permission through the signing of the form.  It is a USPS mail compliance requirement for any CRMA to provide any service to you.  USPS is now enforcing the USPS Form 1583 requirement, don’t risk having your package rejected at the USPS sorting facility because you didn’t have a form filled out.  Each CMRA location is required to collect this form, if you use multiple CMRAs, then you will need to fill out one form per CMRA.

Filling out the form is a one time process and after the USPS 1583 Form submission, you will have no issues with possible rejections of your parcels by USPS and you will be able to fully utilize our facility. Should you decide not to fill out this form, you can opted for our alternative ID Verification form below.
