USPS CASS Certification

CASS standardization is the process of address matching and address verification against current USPS postal address data. USPS CASS verification software is subject to strict USPS standards where compliance must be demonstrated through annual CASS certification. Mail*STAR has been USPS CASS Certified™ since January 1996.

Mail*STAR CASS Certified software includes eLOT®, LACSLink® and SuiteLink™ address enhancement options at no extra charge.

  • eLOT: The eLOT product provides mailers the ability to sort mailings in approximate delivery sequence order.

    Required for Enhanced Carrier Route Sortation

  • LACSLink: The LACSLink process converts rural and irrational addresses to locatable city-style addresses for emergency services. LACSLink also converts renamed and renumbered addresses.
  • SuiteLink: The SuiteLink process enhances business addresses adding unit designators and numbers to business addresses matched to high-rise default records as a result of CASS processing.

Mail*STAR Delivery Point Confirmation
