Recently, the USPS® sent reminders to the mailing industry regarding the regulations surrounding the completion of the NCOALink® Processing Acknowledgement Form (PAF). Specifically, USPS® stated that some companies that are acting as Broker-Agents for NCOALink® services are not completing the PAF accurately. “Broker-Agents should not complete PAFs as the List Owner if they are not indeed the owner of mailing lists being processed through NCOALink® services.” This is an important reminder, as it is related to a federal regulation (Privacy Act of 1974).
