Royal Mail Franking Machine Decertification

What does decertification mean?

From the 1st of January 2023, Royal Mail will no longer accept mail from customers who use standard (i.e. non-Mailmark) franking machines. Mailmark franking uses a 2D barcode which provides the most efficient and accurate way for processing mail.
