MERLIN Reports  
Learn how to read and understand MERLINā„¢ program reports.
Summary Reports

A summary report is printed each time a MERLIN test has been completed. The report recaps all verifications conducted during the MERLIN test and indicates any variations that are outside of U.S. Postal ServiceĀ® tolerances. It is printed and returned to the mailer each time a test is conducted, along with a duplicate copy of the postage statement.
