Subject: Point of Sale Sticker Printing (POSSP) Paper

These documents contain text of correspondence sent by TxDOT to the county tax assessor-collectors, statutory agents who provide vehicle registration and titling services for citizens in Texas. This information is provided to apprise the general public of issues affecting the state's vehicle titling and registration process.

PURPOSE

To advise of recent reports of printing problems with POSSP paper.

DETAILS

TxDOT has received reports of printing problems relating to the POSSP forms. Reports indicate that some POSSP paper is sticking together resulting in printer jams. We have worked closely with the vendor to identify forms that may be potentially affected. Approximately 1.5 million suspect forms were distributed statewide. The control numbers range from 62034001 through 63520000.

Preliminary findings indicate the cause may have been due to incomplete die cuts that allowed the adhesive to seep through when the forms were stacked. We have instituted additional quality control procedures to address this problem and are working with the vendor to determine any other changes that can be made to prevent this from occurring in the future.

The Vehicle Titles and Registration Division, Special Services Branch (SSB), has identified the offices that received the suspect forms. In an effort to minimize the impact of the problem, SSB has begun distribution of partial replacement stock to these offices.

COUNTY ACTION

We ask that you check your remaining inventory of POSSP forms for the control numbers identified above. If a carton of forms falls within the range of the identified control numbers, please do not use that paper if possible and set the box aside for pick up by the vendor. The Regional Office for your area will coordinate pick up of the suspect paper by the vendor in the near future. If the partial replacement stock is not sufficient and more is needed, additional stock should be ordered through normal procedures.

CONTACT

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. If you have any questions or need any additional information, please contact your local Vehicle Titles and Registration Division Regional Office.

In some cases the Registration and Title Bulletins (RTB) contain attachments. If you require a copy of the original signed RTB and the attachments, please e-mail us and include the RTB number. Repeat requests are subject to charges in
