Royal Mail Update – Withdrawing Access 70 CBC

Go back 22 Jun 2017

As your trusted delivery partner we would like to notify you of Royal Mails confirmed withdrawal from Access 70 CBC with effect from 1st January 2018.


Their intention to withdraw from this service was first announced in 2015 to allow additional time for companies to deploy the Mailmark barcode software. The vast majority of mail producers/mailing houses are now set up to produce Mailmark fully supported by Secured Mail.


Next steps

If, after 31 December 2017, you:

(i) declare items as Access 70 CBC, we will charge for them at Access 70 prices;

(ii) declare items as Access OCR and they contain a CBC barcode, your items must adhere to the OCR clear zones


If you have any questions on how this announcement may affect you please contact your Secured Mail account manager for guidance.
