marcmagus: Ten the hard way (ten the hard way)
Saturday, November 20th, 2010 11:50 am

A friend of mine just linked me to this announcement that Japan Post will no longer accept US-bound airmail packages over 1 pound because they'll be stopped at the airlines in order to comply with new TSA antiterrorism measures.

This is clearly a response to the toner cartridge bombs a few weeks ago. I'm trying to figure out whether this is because the Japan Post has no way to certify that packages don't contain a toner cartridge over 1 pound, or if there's more going on that I'm missing, because the only relevant restriction I'm finding is on inbound toner cartridges.

Anything factual that doesn't trace back to the Japan Post Services Co. announcement would be appreciated.
